UPPER WEST SIDE (PIX11) -- A grandmother and her 2-year-old granddaughter were injured from falling debris at 305 West End Ave. on the Upper West Side Sunday morning.
A 911 call was placed around 11 a.m. reporting the child unconscious after she was hit in the head with a stone that fell from the eighth story of the building. When police arrived, they found the toddler was being worked on by nurses from a nursing home nearby. EMS arrived shortly after and revived the child, police said.
Her grandmother, who was pushing the girl in the stroller, was also seriously injured by the debris but is listed in stable condition. Both the child and adult were taken to Cornell Hospital, according to the FDNY. The child is now listed in stable condition.
A building inspector investigating the scene told PIX11 News that the building from which the stones fell, known as The Esplanade, has numerous violations.
