A two-year-old toddler and a 38-year-old man have been injured after plunging from a window of a flat in Calder Street, Govanhill.

Emergency services were called to the scene this week on Monday, October 24 after receiving numerous calls from members of the public.

The area was cordoned off by police while they carried out investigations into what had happened.

A police spokewoman told The Extra: “ Around 12.35pm we were alerted to an incident in Calder Street in the Govanhill area on the southside of Glasgow.

“Two persons, an adult male and a two-year-oldchild were found to have suffered injuries as a result of having fallen from a window.

“Both persons were taken to hospital, where the male is described as having suffered serious injuries, while the girl is in a stable condition.

“Police enquiries into the incident are ongoing, however if anyone has information which may assist the enquiry they can contact police on the 101 number, alternatively the public can use the CRIMESTOPPERS number of 0800 555111.”

Police Scotland were unable to confirm to us how far the pair had fallen, nor whether they were treating the case as suspicious.
