Toddler falls from window

 
A 2-year-old boy was taken to Women and Children’s Hospital after falling from a second-story window at a home on Center Avenue about 2 p.m. Tuesday.
Police say there were five children under the age of 6 in the house and one of the children apparently unlocked the window, opened it and pushed out the screen before the toddler fell. The boy was alert when rescuers arrived and was taken to Women and Children’s Hospital.
The boy’s father, who was home at the time, is not facing any charges.
