Two toddlers taken by air ambulance
Air ambulance had to touch down in Langley twice this weekend to help toddlers in different medical situations.
On Sunday night, an air ambulance landed on the playing field at R.C. Garnett Elementary on 201 Street in Willoughby just before 9 p.m. Scan BC reported that the ambulance flew to Langley to meet a ground ambulance, whose crew was transporting a two-year-old child with serious medical issues.
On Saturday evening, a toddler was flown to B.C. Children’s Hospital after falling from a second-storey window of an Aldergrove home. The two-year-old boy is going to be fine, B.C. Ambulance Service told the media.
Around 5:30 p.m., emergency crews responded to a home on Springfield Drive in Aldergrove near Fraser Highway.
The playing field at the back of Shortreed Elementary School on 28 Avenue was blocked off to make a landing zone for a a medivac helicopter.
The fall is a good reminder to all parents to secure windows and make sure to move anything they can climb on like furniture or planters.
Last year, a two-year-old girl died after falling off a balcony in Surrey and in Mission a girl fell through a screen.
