Toddler fights for life after plunging from flat window
Emergency services raced to the scene in Dumbarton Road, Clydebank, just after 2pm on Wednesday.
A two-year-old girl is fighting for her life after falling from a third-floor window at a block of flats in West Dunbartonshire.
Emergency services were called to the scene in Dumbarton Road, Clydebank, after the alarm was raised just after 2pm on Wednesday.
The Scottish Ambulance Service sent a trauma team and its special operations response unit to the tenement flat near Boquhanran Road.
The toddler was taken to the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow, where her condition is described as critical.
Police cordoned off the area and are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
Detective inspector Steve Martin said: "The little girl has sustained very serious injuries and we are trying to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.
"As such we are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the child fall or anyone who has seen her at the window prior to her falling.
"A number of people were in the area at the time and came to the assistance of the girl and it is important that we speak to all of these people, therefore if any of these people left before speaking to police, we urge them to contact police immediately.
"I also ask any motorists who were in the vicinity around 2.10pm today to check their dashcam footage to see if they have captured the incident."
