Despite the raindrops steadily pelting them in the face, deputies and firefighters refused to take their eyes off a little girl pushing on a second-story window screen from the inside of a Canyon Country apartment Wednesday.

Los Angeles County Fire Department officials received the call at 1:53 p.m., and were asked for a public assist by Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies, according to Fire Department spokeswoman Vanessa Lozana.

“Sheriff’s on the scene required assistance to make entry through a door or window,” Lozano said.

Witnesses on the scene, in the 27000 block of Isabella Parkway, reported that as more and more emergency personnel arrived, Deputy Ben Sanchez with the sheriff’s station remained fixed on the toddler, who at that point was pushing directly on the window screen of the second-story apartment window.

Deputies were preparing to catch the young girl if the screen gave out, while others yelled up to her repeatedly to “go sit on your bed” or “step back from window,” to which the young girl was unresponsive, according to witnesses.

However, at approximately 2:10 p.m., responding personnel were able to force entry and secure the child in the window.

Firefighters had to force entry into the apartment as no adult or guardian was present inside, according to sheriff’s Lt. Ignacio Somoano. The child was wrapped in a deputy’s jacket and carried to the ambulance by a firefighter.

“The patient was transported (to a local area hospital) by ambulance,” said Austin Bennett, a Fire Department spokesman. “The incident closed at 1:37 p.m.”

Law enforcement officials had not yet announced Wednesday afternoon if contact had been made with the girl’s parents, and/or if charges were going to be filed against them.

    I hope that child is at least 10 years old . That adult might have some explaining to do

  2. WMSCV says:

    Why was she transported to the hospital in an ambulance?Why not the sheriff office until contact was made with responsible party.

  3. Travis Levy says:

    I’m glad the parents were arrested for child endangerment . Now the next question is are they legal citizens?

    • Anita Raise says:

      Obviously leaving a child unattended is never advisable, but to question the parents’ citizenship is an over reach and blatantly racist. Not excusing their poor decision and I support fair and reasonable consequences for their action, but check your ignorance please!!
