NEW INFO: Child Hospitalized After Falling From Window

A one year old is home from the hospital and recovering after falling about four feet from a bedroom window Friday night.

It happened at a home on Creek Bank Drive in New Bern.

According to the child's mother, Amanda Paradise, she was cooking when her four year old came to the kitchen and told her his brother had fallen.

Paradise went outside and saw her one year old, William Elk, laying on the ground crying. William had fallen about 4 feet out of a bedroom window after the screen in the window fell out.

Paradise called officials and William was airlifted to the hospital. After a fall like that, there were fears of traumatic injuries, but on Saturday William is home and happy, walking around playing with his toys.
