A three-year-old boy was taken to hospital Friday morning after falling from the window of a Surrey home.

Surrey RCMP say emergency personnel were called to a house near 149 Street and 58A Avenue at about 8:30 a.m. June 13 after the child tumbled from an upper floor bedroom window.

He was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and is expected to fully recover.

Police say it appears the fall was "an unfortunate accident" and serves as a reminder for parents and caregivers to keep windows secure during warmer weather and watch children closely.
