Assist fellow Department Within the City
Location: 3200 Block of El Camino Real
Patrol units were dispatched to the 3200 block of El Camino Real to assist the Santa Clara Fire Department. A 4-year old child had fallen from a third floor window after leaning against a screen. Fortunately, the child was uninjured.
Case Number: 17-4777
NOTE: Every year, the Police Department is summoned to investigate injuries, or a death, as a result of a window fall. To prevent a window fall, consider the following:
- Limit openings to four inches or less by using a window stop/guard for any window more than six feet off the ground;
- Move furniture away from windows and balconies. Children can climb on beds, cribs, couches, patio furniture, etc. increasing the falling risk;
- Monitor your child. Do not leave children unattended on balconies or decks.
- Talk to your children about the dangers of playing near windows, particularly on upper floors;
- Plant grass or shrubbery around your home to soften the impact surface in case of a fall.
