Baby Falls From Apartment Window in Danville, No Charges

Danville, VA - The parents of a 1-year-old baby who fell from a third story window of an apartment building in Danville will not be charged.

Police say the case is closed.

Danville Police did respond to the scene around 1:30 p.m. Thursday, but they determined the fall was an accident.

It happened at the Purdum Woods apartment complex on Richmond Boulevard.

Police say the 1-year-old boy was transported to Danville Regional Medical Center, but has been released.

We were not able to talk with the parents, but witnesses say the aftermath was incredibly sad for everyone.

"The mother....they went in the house, and I think she was still in the house and she came down the stairs and she was crying, and with all the firetrucks and the ambulances and policemen, it was very sad," said Rubin Wilson, a neighbor.
