Boy falls 3 storeys from Surrey home

A five-year-old boy has been airlifted to B.C. Children's hospital after falling from a third floor apartment, Surrey RCMP say.

It happened in the 10,700-block of 139th Street just after noon, a day after a similar accident in Langley.

The B.C. Ambulance Service says the boy is in serious condition.

Police say they're still trying to figure out if he fell from a window, or from the balcony.
