3-year-old survives fall out of 4th-floor window

A toddler was hospitalized after falling out of a fourth-floor window of a Fontainebleau apartment building.

The child was awake and crying when rescuers got to the home, in the 9500 block of Fontainebleau Boulevard, just after 1 p.m. on Thursday, said Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokeswoman Erika Benitez. She said the toddler fell into a mulched area, and not on nearby pavement.

Miami-Dade police spokesman Dan Ferrin said that based on early reports, the 3-year-old’s fall seemed like “just an accident.”
