Tragedy as girl, 2, left fighting for life after plunging 40ft from top floor window


The girl fell from a top floor window of the block of flats in Barrhead, near Glasgow at around 8.25pm on September 2. The child was then rushed to the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow minutes after the incident.

A neighbour told local outlets the toddler out of a top floor window, but there was little other information available.

They said: “We have been told that a young girl fell out of a top-floor window but little else.

“The emergency services were on the scene quickly and the police have been back a few times since.

“I don’t think many people realised what was going on at the time.”

The Daily Record reported the two-year-olds condition is stable.

However, police have not disclosed the extent of the toddlers injuries.

The child’s parents, who reportedly moved into the flats last November, are thought to be keeping a bedside vigil at the hospital, the Barrhead News reports.

Police Scotland’s Public Protection Unit confirmed an investigation into the incident had been launched by detectives on Wednesday.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Police received report of a two-year-old girl who was injured after falling from the window of a flat on Craighead Way in Barrhead around 8.25pm on Thursday, September 2. 

“Emergency services attended and she was taken to the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow, where her condition is described as stable. 

“Enquiries are ongoing to establish the circumstances surrounding this incident.”
