Two women have been arrested on suspicion of child neglect after a two-year-old boy fell out of a window at an eighth floor flat.
The toddler suffered serious injuries but miraculously survived the fall on Tuesday at a block of flats in Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey.
He was airlifted to a London hospital where his condition was said to be critical but stable.
A spokesman for Surrey Police said that since the incident two women, 24 and 30 and both from Sudbury, had been arrested on suspicion of child neglect which led to the toddler being able to fall out of the window in Spelthorne Grove.
‘Both women have been interviewed and released on police bail while inquiries continue,’ the spokesman added.
The alarm over the little boy’s fall was raised by a neighbour in the flats who was on her balcony when she heard a child’s cries and looked down to see the toddler lying on the ground.
Pictures from the scene on Tuesday showed police tape around a block of flats. Police and paramedics attended the scene on Spelthorne Grove, where a two-year-old boy was airlifted to hospital
