A toddler had to be airlifted to B.C. Children's Hospital in Vancouver after tumbling from a third-floor balcony in Kelowna, B.C.
RCMP report the two-year-old fell early Saturday from the balcony of an apartment complex in Kelowna's Rutland neighbourhood.
A woman living on the ground floor of the complex heard the child screaming and called for help.
Amanda Beaudry says the boy was responsive but had scratches, a cut behind his ear and a large lump on the back of his head.
She says his mother was with him by the time paramedics arrived and Beaudry has since learned the toddler suffered a fractured skull and internal injuries.
An RCMP news release says police and officials from the Ministry of Child and Family Development are looking into what happened. (CKIZ, CKNW)
