Updated: 9-Year-Old Special Needs Boy Who Fell From Second-Story Window in Stable Condition

Cranberry boy was transported by medical helicopter to Pittsburgh.

The 9-year-old special needs boy who was injured when he fell from a second-floor window of his home on Eden Way Court in Cranberry is in stable conditon.

Sgt. Chuck Mascellino, of Cranberry police, said the boy was alone in his bedroom when he fell from the window at about 7 a.m. Friday and landed in the home's driveway. Both parents were home at the time.

When emergency responders arrived at the home, the boy was semi-conscious, Mascellino said.

The child was rushed to before being flown by medical helicopter to a hospital in Pittsburgh.

"The child is considered stable, but being closely monitored," Mascellino said.

There is no further information on the boy's injuries as of Friday afternoon, Mascellino said.

Police will investigate the incident, but there appears to be nothing suspicious, he said.

Police are not releasing the boy's name.

Neighbor Jane Olson, who has lived two doors down from the family for about a decade, said the boy's mother always keeps a close eye on her son. Another neighbor said he often sees the boy's mom walking around the neighborhood with him. 

"It's a horrible shame," Olson said. "They're a wonderful family."

Olson said the boy also has an older brother.
