PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Portsmouth police say a toddler fell from a window in the 3800 block of Headwind Lane Sunday evening.

Just before 7 p.m., a 1-year-old boy was playing with his cousin in the second story of a residence, according to Det. Misty Holley with Portsmouth Police. The children were reportedly jumping on a bed when the boy bounced off the bed, hit a window screen and went through the window, falling to the ground below.

The boy was transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with serious injuries that were not considered life-threatening, Holley said.

Holley said there was someone supervising the children, possibly a babysitter. She said the incident is considered accidental and no charges will be filed.
