Baby flown to Boston hospital after 20-foot fall

A 13-month-old girl in Hyannis was flown to Tufts Medical Center via Medflight helicopter with non-life threatening injuries after falling more than 20 feet from a window, authorities said Sunday.

Barnstable police responded to a single-family house at 136 Seagate Lane at 11:29 a.m. Sunday and found the toddler with her mother, Sergeant David Myett said. The girl fell from a window and landed over mulch, he said.
