Two young children fell from a second-story window of a home in the San Francisco Bayview district on Tuesday afternoon, according to the San Francisco Fire Department,
A 5-year-old boy and 7-year-old girl where taken to San Francisco General Hospital after the fall, which occurred on the 2600 block of Newhall Street just before 3:30 p.m., according to a dispatcher from the San Francisco Fire Department.
The two children were said to be awake when the firefighters arrived at the scene, according to the dispatcher. There were no immediate details about the exact condition of the children or the details of how they fell from the window.
The San Francisco accident is the second this week in the region in which children fell from a window. A 2-year-old girl and her 3-year-old brother fell from a second story window at a house in Petaluma on Monday. In that incident, the young children had climbed onto a dresser in their playroom and fell out the window after leaning on a screen.
Those children suffered only minor injuries since their falls were broken by a bush below the window, and were released from the hospital Tuesday.
