The incident happened in Marsden Street at 11am today.

An air ambulance landed at nearby Talacre Green in front of the Talacre Community Sports Centre.

Paramedics rushed to the scene and the one-year-old boy was carried to an ambulance and taken to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington.

A London Ambulance spokesman said: “We were called at around 11am to reports of a fall from a height in Marsden Street.

“We sent a responder car, an ambulance crew, and London’s air ambulance to the scene.

“We treated a child at the scene.

“He was taken as a priority to St Mary’s Hospital, a major trauma centre, escorted by a doctor from London’s air ambulance.”

The boy’s family this afternoon said he was going to be okay but made no further comment.

Chris Knight, 66, a former Hampstead Town councillor, who was passing on his motorbike when the incident happened, said: “I came up the road to find some slowing of the traffic and the air ambulance was coming in to land at Talacre Green in front of the sports centre.

“There were a couple of blue flashing lights from police vans so I stopped.

“In nearby Marsden Street a child appeared to have fallen out of a window and to the street down below.

“There were a number of police and paramedic-type people around the area of the house looking down onto the ground.

“They brought out what looked like a child being carried by its father and put him into the ambulance and off it went with a police escort.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
