  • "Bottom line, parents need to take extra precautions around windows and keep young children within arms' reach when windows are open," concluded Macy.

    The medical experts at Mott also noted that if a child does fall from a window, call 911 immediately. Never attempt to move a child who appears to be seriously injured, they added.
