A 2-year-old boy was hospitalized after he fell out of a second-story window Friday at a northeast Harris County apartment complex.
"He was alive, he was breathing, he was screaming. Poor baby, he was in pain. From what I seen, he had a knot on his forehead, his nose was bleeding, his mouth," a neighbor told KTRK.
KHOU reported that the boy fell after his mother had opened the windows while she was cleaning and the tot pushed through one of the windows and fell.
Officials told KHOU that the toddler lost consciousness at the scene and was rushed to the ER for traumatic injuries.
The accident happened at the Lafayette Village Apartment complex in the 4800 block of East Sam Houston Parkway.
