An 11-month-old child fell from a third-story window on Tuesday evening, sustaining significant injuries. The incident occurred at approximately 6:18 p.m. at a residence on Lucas Avenue. Newport Fire received the initial call reporting possible injuries and bleeding. Emergency responders, including Engine 2 and Rescue 3, were dispatched to the scene. Upon arrival, Engine 2 personnel were informed by a neighbor that the child’s parents had already taken the infant to Newport Hospital. Given the severity of the injuries, Car 2, which was in the vicinity at the time, coordinated with Boston Med Flight to arrange rapid transport to Hasbro Children’s Hospital. Rescue 1, already stationed at Newport Hospital, confirmed the child had sustained major trauma and remained at the hospital to assist with preparations for further transport.

Follow Up: Man recounts horrifying moments following fiery car crash in his East Providence front yard

VIDEO/PHOTOS: A Riverside man recounted to NBC 10 News on Tuesday the horrifying moments following a fiery two-vehicle crash in his front yard. East Providence police said a vehicle crashed into a utility pole on Forbes Street at about 8 p.m. Monday. The crash knocked out power to thousands and caused extensive damage. Riverside resident Peter Rocha was spending his morning cleaning up the damage, following a two-car crash right outside his home. "My lovely bushes and things are all gone,” he said. “There was a big stump here that I had plants growing out of-- it's no longer there. I believe that's what caused the vehicle to go airborne and strike this tree.” Police said an 18-year-old female driver from West Warwick crashed an SUV into a utility pole and came to a stop on Rocha’s front yard. Two other teen boys from West Warwick, ages 15 and 17, were in the car with her.
