7-year-old injured in three-story fall from hotel room

A Madison police officer comforted an injured boy Monday afternoon after the child fell three stories from a hotel room window.

The officer stayed with the 7-year-old and urged him to stay awake until the ambulance arrived, according to a Madison Police Department incident report.

The child had been playing inside a third-floor room about 4 p.m. at the GrandStay Hotel and Suites, 5317 High Crossing Blvd., when he evidently leaned hard into a window screen, causing it to detach, according to police.

He fell to the grass below. It appeared he had a broken arm and told police he hurt "all over."

He was taken to a hospital with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.
