ERDA, Utah — A young child was taken to a hospital by medical helicopter with significant head trauma after he fell from a window Saturday night.

The fall happened sometime around 7 p.m. Saturday. The boy was transported to Primary Children’s Medical Center. Officials said the boy had significant head trauma but would not give more specifics regarding the child’s condition.
