Child not seriously injured in fall at fairgrounds

In what Sheriff David Beth called “a little miracle,” an 18-month-old boy sustained no serious injuries after falling from the top row of the grandstand at the Kenosha County Fairgrounds Saturday night.

The boy was apparently reaching for popcorn when he slipped through the grandstand and fell, Beth said. The boy was transported from Wilmot by Flight to Life medical transport helicopter to Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee. He remained in the hospital Sunday afternoon for observation, Beth said.

No charges are being filed in connection with the case, Beth said.

Here is some video of Beth talking with the press at the fairgrounds on Sunday about the incident:
