According to Southold Town Police Captain Frank Kruszeski, police and the Mattituck Fire Department responded to a call just after noon on Route 25 in Mattituck, near the Hess station, where there was a report of a two-year-old boy who had fallen from a second story window.
A plumbing crew who had been performing work at the residence found the child, Javier, who had fallen through open Bilco doors and into the basement below; a member of the crew dialed 911, police said.
The child was flown to Stony Brook University Medical Center by Suffolk County Police helicopter, Kruszeski said; his condition was not immediately known.
A resident of the home where the incident occurred, Brian Perez, said the child was being watched by a baby-sitter while his mother was at work, and that the toddler was jumping and fell out of the window by accident.
Police confirmed the information and said there was a baby-sitter in charge at the time and it "appears it was an accident."
