Boy Escapes Serious Injury Despite Fall From Fourth Floor Hotel Room Window On Central Coast

A five year old boy escaped serious injury after a terrifying experience on the Central Coast, falling four stories from a building.

Pismo Beach Police say the boy’s family was staying at a Pomeroy Street hotel Thursday when the boy fell from a fourth story window.

But, when officers responding to a 911 call arrived on the scene, the boy was walking around on the sidewalk below the window.

He was rushed to a hospital, where doctors found he had a minor fracture, but was otherwise okay. Police determined the fall was an accident, and there was no foul play involved.
