Toddler Falls Off Second-floor Balcony in Orlando

May 6, 2011

A toddler suffered head injuries after falling from a second-floor balcony at the University of Central Florida’s Millican Hall.

Orange County Fire Rescue officials say the incident happened just before 3 p.m. Tuesday. He was taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando.

University spokesman Chad Binette says the 18-month-old child was with his father and two other children when he ran toward the railing. The child hit a window ledge and then fell to the ground.

Binette says after the accident, workers installed a Plexiglas barrier to cover the area until permanent repairs can be made.
