Boy, 3, found without vital signs after falling from Ottawa high-rise

Ottawa paramedics say a three-year-old boy was rushed to CHEO Sunday afternoon after falling several storeys from an apartment on Donald Street.

The boy had no vital signs when paramedics arrived at around 1 p.m., a spokesperson said.

Responding paramedics tried to resuscitate the child as he was taken to the children’s trauma centre, where his vital signs remained absent.

Ottawa paramedics did not have an update on his current condition when speaking to CTV News Ottawa Sunday afternoon.

Ottawa paramedics told CTV News Ottawa that a window screen was seen on the ground near the boy, and one was missing from a 16th floor window; however, a person who lives in the building told CTV News Ottawa at the scene that the boy fell from the 18th floor. 

The building is an 19-floor building, with no 13th floor.

Ottawa police have not yet responded to CTV News Ottawa’s request for details. Police tape could be seen around the building at 1240 Donald St. Sunday afternoon.

This is a developing story… more details to come as they become available.
