June 30, 2012

No one was hurt as a car crashed into the front of the Wild Birds Unlimited store at 4821 Evergreen Way in Everett Saturday afternoon. There were two employees, Jeanne and Susie who were working in the store when shortly after 3:30 a silver Lexus smashed into the front windows. “It made the most horrific sound,” said Jeanne. Susie told me a woman was driving the Lexus and just sitting in the driver’s seat looking shocked. She said the woman appeared uninjured. The store remained open as a tow truck was called to the scene to assist the Lexus out of the store. No word on what caused the driver to crash into the store. Jeanne says the owner told her this was the second time someone had driven into the front of her store. The first happened about ten years ago when the store was located on Whidbey Island.

Toddler Falls Out Second Story Window Onto Asphalt at South Everett Apartment

June 30, 2012

Window screens only prevent bugs from getting in, not kids falling out.

A three-year old girl was transported to Harborview hospital Saturday morning after falling more than 10 feet out of an apartment window. Leslie Hynes from Fire District 1 provides the details…

Firefighters were called at 10:24 a.m. to the 1200 block of 113th St. SW where the girl fell more than 10 feet from the apartment window onto asphalt. “The girl was crying loudly when firefighters arrived. Her injuries appeared to be minor. Because a fall like this has the potential to cause internal injuries that might not be immediately apparent, paramedics transported the girl to Harborview Medical Center as a precaution,” said Leslie Hynes, public information officer for Snohomish County Fire District 1.

“There had been a screen on the window, but the child apparently pushed up against it. Screens are designed to keep bugs out, and can’t support the weight of even a small child,” Hynes said.

She urged parents of young children to be aware of the dangers open windows can pose. Fire District 1 offers these safety tips:

· Adult supervision is key. Unattended children run the greatest risk of falls and injuries, so the best first step is to watch children as they play.

· Keep furniture that children can climb on away from windows.

· Do not depend on window screens to prevent children from falling. Screens can easily give way under a child’s weight.

· Consider installing window guards. Be sure that these guards meet new federal standards for escape in the event of a fire. Window guards can be found at hardware stores and children’s specialty stores.

If you’ve seen Todd Caudle please call Everett Police at 425-257-8450

The Everett Police Department is seeking the public’s help in locating Mr. Todd Patrick Caudle who was reported missing from the 4800 block of Glenwood Ave on the evening of June 27, 2012.  Mr. Caudle’s mother reported him missing and is concerned his mental wellbeing makes him a threat to himself.  Since the time of his disappearance, no one has had contact or received any information on his whereabouts.

Mr. Caudle, 49 years old, has an extensive history of mental health issues.  On the evening of the 27th, Mr. Caudle became upset and attempted to strangle himself after learning he was being moved to an assisted living facility where he would receive appropriate help for his condition.  Mr. Caudle left before officers arrived.  He has a history of hearing voices in his head to hurt himself and is paranoid of people.

Mr. Caudle is about 6’ tall, 200 pounds with blue eyes and light brown wavy hair.  He left home wearing a tan sweatshirt with “Miami” on the front, black jeans and black shoes.  He did not take anything with him.

Aside from medical stays, this is the first time Mr. Caudle has been away from home for any length of time.  There is sufficient evidence to believe that he is in danger of harming himself and potentially others.  If found, contact local law enforcement and do not approach Mr. Caudle.

We would like anyone who might have information or sees Mr. Caudle to please call 911, the Everett Police Department TIP LINE at (425) 257-8450 or Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-TIPS.
