BELMONT — Police continue to investigate the reason a 2-year-old child fell down a flight of stair at a Concord Street apartment building Wednesday morning. She was apparently seriously injured by the fall.
Lt. Rich Mann said police have removed the yellow tape from the front door of Apartment 3 in Building 2 in the Belmont Village Apartments.
"This is an open and active inquiry," Mann added. "Members of the detective bureau are looking in to circumstances surrounding this event."
Public safety officials said yesterday the child was found at the bottom of the stairs breathing but unconscious. She was in the care of an adult while her mother was a work.
After being transported by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia, she was stabilized in the emergency room and flown by helicopter to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon. He condition is not known and police are not releasing the identity of the family.
In a written statement, Mann said that, "anytime someone is injured in our community we make every effort to determine how and why it occurred."
