Another child fell out a second-story window and is seriously hurt.
This is the sixth time a child has fallen out of a window in just the last month.
Fire crews have responded to calls from Hillsboro to Clackamas to Beaverton and in each case a child has been hurt after they fell out of a second story window.
On Friday afternoon, Portland fire crews responded to a home on Northwest Ash Court after a 5-year-old boy fell about 15 feet to the ground below.
The boy was taken by lifeflight to Legacy Emanuel in critical condition.
On Friday afternoon, you could see where the screen was hanging from the window of the home's second story.
Fire officials said that boy was playing in his room when he somehow was able to get his bedroom window open and fall out.
In just the last three weeks, fire fighters in the metro area have responded to six calls where a child or toddler has fallen out of a second story window.
Until today, most of the children have suffered only minor injuries from those falls.
Fire officials said there are ways to keep your kids safe.
"You don't want to have any furniture, beds that sort of thing around that kids can climb up on because that just makes it easier for them to get to the window," said Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue spokesperson Peter Scott.
Scott also suggest using tools like window clips or dowels to keep kids from pushing open a window.
They said the real way to keep your kids safe is to make sure they're being supervised.
