Girl, 2, injured in 10-foot fall from window
A 2-year-old girl fell from a second-story apartment window in Glen Burnie yesterday, sustaining serious but not life-threatening injuries, an Anne Arundel County fire official said.
"The child was standing up at the window ... watching some children at a bus stop, and the screen gave way," said Capt. Michael Cox, the Fire Department spokesman.
The toddler fell about 10 feet, suffering head, neck, back and internal injuries, Cox said. She was taken by ambulance to the pediatric emergency unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
The accident occurred just before 7 a.m. in the 8100 block of Great Bend Road. Hospital officials said they could not provide information about the child's condition.

A 17-year-old Broadneck High School senior was found dead in his car after a night of drinking, Anne Arundel County police said.
Galen Harig-Blaine of the 1700 block of St. Margarets Road, north of Annapolis, fell asleep outside a friend's Arnold home Sunday morning and never left, said county police spokesman Cpl. Mark Shawkey. Blaine was pronounced dead at the scene.
The results of an autopsy are pending, said the medical examiner's office in Baltimore.
Crisis counselors will be at Broadneck High School for the third consecutive day today.
Classmates and friends recalled an affable teenager who loved to find new places to skateboard with his friends. Blaine also played violin in the orchestra and was in the school's marching band.
T.J. Guare, a friend of Blaine's, told police that he and Blaine had consumed alcohol from 9 p.m. the previous evening until 4 a.m. Blaine had seemed active and talkative throughout the night, his friend told police. Blaine fell asleep in the car, and his friend went into his house to sleep. About 10:20 a.m., his friend found Blaine unresponsive inside the car, Shawkey said.
