TAYLORSVILLE — A 20-month old toddler was rushed to Primary Children's Medical Center Sunday evening after he tumbled off a first-floor balcony at an apartment complex.

Unified Police Department Sgt. Marni Montgomery said the boy was somehow able to slip through the bars of the railing at about 8:10 p.m. and fell about 9 feet to a cement patio below.

The child was taken to Primary Children's Medical Center for treatment following the accident at 1432 Stettlers Way (4645 South).

Montgomery said emergency doctors were performing tests on the child, whose condition had been stabilized.
