County Sheriff’s Report
May 22, 2009
A 1-year-old Oakley boy was flown to Primary Children’s Medical Center Wednesday after he fell into a window well at his home.
"It was a fairly deep window well," said Terry Taylor, a spokeswoman for South Summit Ambulance. "It was about six feet deep. It’s a pretty good size fall for a child that size."
The boy was flown to Primary Children’s Medical Center at about 6 p.m., she said.
"It was more of a precautionary measure to fly him," Taylor said, adding that the boy was in serious condition. "He had a bump on his head and he was just getting kind of lethargic. We wanted to get him into the hospital as quick as possible."
The fall occurred at the boy’s home in the Bench Creek area of Oakley, she said.
"His dad was out there, but you know kids," Taylor said.

The boy’s head was not bleeding and he was conscious at the scene, Taylor said, adding that dirt and concrete lined the bottom of the window well.
"It was a fairly hard surface," she said. "His dad said he did bite his tongue but we didn’t see any blood."
