'Bad day for kids' in the SCV

Local law enforcement officers are calling it "a bad day for kids" as they follow-up on the death of an infant and on an accident involving a child who fell from a two-storey window, now hospitalized.

A sergeant fielding calls from the media at the Santa Clarita Sheriff's Station delivered some bad news to inquiring reporters about children, on the heels of Monday night's death of a two-year-old boy in Canyon Country.

"It's a bad day for kids," Sgt. Michael Wright told The Signal.

Shortly before 2 p.m., sheriff's deputies still reeling from the sudden death of toddler Jack Roscoe Winchester on High Point Place in Canyon Country were called to another house in Canyon Country.
A 5-month-old girl is believed to have died of natural causes inside a home on Palomino Place, Sgt. Wright said.

Then, in an unrelated incident about three and a half hours later, deputies were asked to respond to Stillmore Street, also in Canyon Country, where a child had reportedly fallen out of a two-storey window.

The child, whose name and gender were not included in the preliminary report to the sheriff's station, was rushed to a children's hospital in the San Fernando Valley, Sgt. Wright said.
