A toddler has been rushed to hospital after plunging from a tall residential building in east London.

Emergency services were scrambled to East India Dock Road in Poplar at 6.54pm after a child fell ‘from height’. 

Paramedics treated the child at the scene before they were taken by road to a major trauma centre, where their condition remains unknown.

Pictures show ambulances parked outside a high-rise block of flats and an air ambulance, which was not used, swooping in on a nearby park.

 Scotland Yard’s Tower Hamlet’s branch tweeted tonight: ‘Police called at 18:54hrs to East India Dock Road to reports of a child fallen from height from a residential building. 

‘Officers attended with LAS (London Ambulance Service). The child, believed to be a toddler, has been taken to hospital – we await a condition update.

‘Officers remain on scene & road closures are in place at junction with Chrisp Street and Newby Place. Motorists should use other routes.’  

A London Ambulance spokesperson said: ‘We sent an incident response officer and two ambulances to the scene. 

‘We also dispatched a unit from our hazardous area response team and London’s Air Ambulance.

‘Crews treated a child at the scene and took them to a major trauma centre by road.’
