A two year old child is recovering from serious injuries following a major fall in Owen Sound.

Around 10:00 a.m. Saturday, a father and his two young children attended a downtown business.

The father accessed the business by a rear fire escape and rooftop off of 1st Ave E .

Upon leaving the business, the father and his two year old son were temporarily distracted while walking on the roof top.

Once reaching the edge of the building, the child fell over 20 feet to the sidewalk below.

He was transported to hospital and later airlifted to London with serious injuries.

Witnesses say the incident appears to be an extremely unfortunate accident.
