SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Sioux Falls police say no criminal charges are expected after a 2-year-old boy fell from a third-floor apartment window.
Police spokesman Sam Clemens says the boy climbed onto a table, crawled out the window and onto a ledge before falling 27 feet to the ground on Saturday.
The Argus Leader reports (http://argusne.ws/1PTWr5A ) the boy was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
Clemens says the boy's mother was in another area of the apartment, and had left the boy to watch TV with his older siblings, ages 3, 4 and 6. Clemens says there was a screen on the window, but that the incident serves as a reminder for parents to make sure windows are safe for small children.
