Police: New Jersey child in critical condition after falling from window

WASHINGTON TWP.,, N.J. - A five-year-old child in Warren County, New Jersey, was flown to the hospital Monday after falling out of a window.

Crews were dispatched to the scene on Hann Terrace in Washington at 3:42 p.m.

Neighbors tell 69 News the boy fell from a second story window. 

" I was watching TV, all of a sudden I heard this crash, and I heard a kid holler 'Mommy.' And that was it," said Helen Corter, a neighbor.

Corter said she saw the mother come running out of the home soon after the child fell.  She said the child was then taken inside until emergency responders arrived.

"The white screen that is leaned against the house, that was what was in the window. And I guess when he hit the window that came out and so did he," Corter said.

The child was flown to Morristown Medical Center in Morristown, New Jersey. Police said the child is in critical condition.

The investigation is ongoing.
