A 5-year-old boy is believed to be recovering after falling from a three-story building on Silver Aspen Way in Stevenson Ranch Sunday.

The incident happened at 1:43 p.m., prompting a response within a couple of minutes by firefighters of the Los Angeles County Fire Department, Fire Department Supervisor Cheryl Sims said.  

The boy, who was then airlifted to Northridge Hospital Medical Center, was described as conscious at the time.

“The child was conscious when they airlifted him,” Shirley Miller, spokeswoman for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff Station, said Monday.

Deputies assisted firefighters when the 911 call was received, she said.

A rescue helicopter dispatched to the call landed at West Ranch High School where it met firefighters transporting the boy.

Neither the boy’s identity nor his condition were disclosed.
