DES MOINES — A 3-year-old boy has been hurt in a fall from a second-floor window at Des Moines apartment building.
A police report said the mother told authorities that she was diapering one of her children about 11 a.m. Friday when another child opened a bedroom window and began playing between the window and the curtain. She yelled at the boy to stop but she said he fell backward through the screen and out the window.
The boy fell 12 to 14 feet, landing on the grass. Police said he was taken to a hospital for injuries that weren’t life-threatening.
Police said the incident appears to be an accident. — AP
