February 20, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

An 18-month-old child was apparently uninjured yesterday afternoon after falling from a third-story window of an apartment building onto concrete in Harper's Choice village in Columbia, fire officials said.

Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services personnel raced to the 6100 block of Turnabout Lane about 3:30 p.m. after the fall was reported.

"There were no obvious injuries," said M. Sean Kelly, fire department spokesman. Because of the nature of the incident, the child was taken to Johns Hopkins Children's Center for observation, Kelly said.

The child's name was not released yesterday, and fire officials could offer no explanation of the circumstances that led to the fall.
