CHELSEA, Manhattan (PIX11) — A 3-year-old child was hospitalized after falling from a sixth-floor window in Chelsea, Manhattan Sunday, police said.

The child fell from an apartment window at the New York City Housing Authority’s Chelsea Houses on West 26th Street just before noon, according to police. The child was hospitalized in critical but stable condition.

It was not yet clear how the child fell through the window. PIX11 News saw relatives of the toddler at the scene, but they declined to speak on camera.

Barbara Brancaccio, NYCHA’s chief communications officer, provided the following statement about the incident.

“This is an active NYPD investigation. NYCHA is also conducting an internal investigation of this unfortunate incident and will work with the family to ensure they are connected to the services they need.

Based on an immediate review of our records, window guards were installed on all windows when the family moved into the apartment in January 2023. Less than a week ago, on Wednesday, April 12, property management staff entered the apartment to complete repairs unrelated to window guards, and performed a NYCHA 5 Alive inspection, which includes an inspection for window guards. Our records indicate that window guards were present on all windows throughout the apartment at that time.

There are no open repair work orders on record for the windows, window guards, or air conditioners at the residence.”

Several hours later, another toddler fell from a window in Queens, police said.

Authorities found the 2-year-old girl lying on the grass outside of the building at 20-43 Seagirt Blvd., near Beach 24th Steet in Far Rockaway, at around 3:30 p.m., according to the NYPD. The girl was taken to the hospital in stable condition.
