Child Falls Off Balcony Of Apartment Complex

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A child suffered minor injuries after falling off of a second-story balcony of an apartment complex in Antioch on Monday morning.

The call went out around 10 a.m. at the Mission Mill Creek Apartments on Arbor Ridge Drive. 

The woman who lives inside the apartment told NewsChannel 5 that she is a babysitter and was watching five children, mostly toddlers, when a 1-year-old slipped out of the glass door onto the balcony. He fell through the wooden rails, and off the balcony to the grass below.

Medics told the woman that the boy did not suffer any broken bones or signs of trauma, but an ambulance took the child to Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. He was treated and released.

No charges were filed.
