LITTLE ROCK, AR – Little Rock Police say a toddler fell from a hotel balcony and suffered a fractured skull Monday.
According to reports, the child’s mother Arlesha Arnold was standing on the balcony at the Super 7 Motel, located at 9725 Interstate 30 in Little Rock, while talking to Anthony Kelly as her son, one-year-old Braylon Halton played with his water gun. Arnold told police that as he played, Halton leaned against the railing of the balcony and broke one of the rails, falling off the balcony and landed headfirst onto the pavement.
Halton was taken to Arkansas Children’s Hospital where he was treated for a fractured skull and a small head bleed. Police say the incident appears to be an accident and no charges have been filed at this time.
The investigation is ongoing.
