Sandusky boy, 3, falls out of window

SANDUSKY - A 3-year-old boy was hurt seriously yesterday when he fell onto the sidewalk from a second-story window of his home, police said.

Gavin Johnson was admitted to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, Toledo, in serious condition after being flown there from Firelands Regional Medical Center, a hospital spokesman said.

The boy's mother was in the room about 3 p.m. as the child pushed on the screen of an open window and fell onto the concrete, Lt. William McPeek said.

The fall is believed to be accidental, but children's services will investigate, Lieutenant McPeek said.
