OREGON CITY — Firefighters in Oregon’s Clackamas County say they have responded twice in one day to reports of small children falling out of second-story windows.
In both cases Wednesday, the children suffered non-life-threatening injuries. A third child took a similar tumble Monday in the county.
Clackamas Fire District No. 1 spokesman Brandon Paxton said Wednesday’s cases involved a 16-month-old boy and a 5-year-old girl. In each case, the child was playing on a bunk bed positioned right next to an open window with no child-proof locks.
Paxton cautions that window screens are designed to keep bugs out, not children in.
