PIQUA – A child suffered injuries when she apparently fell from an open second floor window on Wednesday afternoon.

Piqua fire department medics responded to 925 Washington Ave. on the report of a child who fell.

Deputy Piqua Police Chief Tom Steiner said that the three-year-old, who police are not identifying, was playing near an open window on the second floor of the home, when the mother told the child to move away from the window. Steiner said that when told to move, the child apparently leaned the wrong direction and fell.

Medics requested CareFlight to respond to the American Legion Landing Zone at Piqua Fire Department to transport the child to a Dayton Hospital.

Steiner said that the extent of injuries are unknown but the child was responsive following the incident.

Piqua police are conducting a routine investigation about the incident.
