Still working to get more information on this – police and fire units have been in the 6000 block of Lanham Place – police say the Fire Department asked them to assist with a report of “2 small children that fell out of a window.” We have a crew arriving there and also will be checking with SFD for more information – stand by for more details. 4:04 PM UPDATE: WSB contributing journalist Christopher Boffoli is at the scene. Neighbors tell him two children fell from a third-story window. One is said to be 4 years old. We don’t know the other’s age, nor the condition, yet. 4:10 PM UPDATE: Dana Vander Houwen with SFD tells us the children are both 3, one boy and one girl, who fell 25 feet into “soft bark” and both have “non-life-threatening injuries” – both were taken to Harborview Medical Center. 4:55 PM UPDATE: We also have a photo from Tony Bradley, who says the children reportedly were playing near the window just before they fell and may have pushed on the screen.
