Sherman Police say the 3-year-old boy who fell from a third-story balcony Tuesday morning is going to be alright.


At about 10:25 a.m., emergency personnel received a call reporting that a small child had fallen from a third-story balcony in the 1200 block of West Taylor Street. Police and fire units arrived at the apartment complex where the incident happened, and the child was transported by helicopter to a children’s hospital in Dallas.


Sherman Police Sgt. D.M. Hampton said investigators contacted the hospital and were told the child was alert and responsive.


“It’s obviously still pretty serious, but it appears the child is going to be OK,” Hampton said.


Hampton said police are conducting an investigation, and it’s currently unknown whether criminal charges will be filed.
