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.
