According to the Pueblo Chieftain, a 2 year old girl fell out of a two-story window on Thursday, June 3, 2010 on the South Side. The accident happened on Sitter Place in the Sangre de Cristo housing project. The young girl was leaning on an window screen when the screen gave way, and the little girl fell onto the grass below. While the toddler did not seem to have any serious injuries, she was taken to St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center for testing.
