Hospital releases boy after third-floor fall

More about the toddler

Edwin Alejandro, the 2-year-old who fell from the third floor of a Lawrence apartment building Friday, was released from the hospital Sunday, said Thomas McCormally, a Children's Mercy Hospital spokesman.

Edwin was flown to the Kansas City, Mo., hospital Friday evening for observation after he leaned against and fell through a window screen at the Boardwalk Apartments, 509 Fireside Drive.

Lawrence Police said officers did not suspect foul play; Edwin's mother was in another room tending to other children, and he was in the room by himself.

He awoke from a nap and was standing on a chair in front of the window where the screen was intact. He leaned against it and fell through but apparently escaped serious injury.

I still can't believe that that boy didn't get seriously hurt. Talk about guardian angels, he had a very good one.
