2-year-old OK after falling from second-story window in Niagara Falls

A 2-year-old boy who fell from a second-story window in Niagara Falls avoided serious injury, according to police and the boy's grandmother.

Niagara Falls police responded to the Monteagle Ridge Estates on Hyde Park Boulevard at about 4:40 p.m. Tuesday after a 911 call from a neighbor, according to a police report.

The boy fell after pressing up against a window screen, which was described as not being "really secured into the frame," said Coretta Bones, his grandmother. Fortunately, he landed on some mulch. He was taken to the hospital for observation but didn't break any bones.

He's been walking around and playing like normal, Bones said.

"God was with him," she said.

The boy had been napping inside her apartment, said Bones, who also was napping, according to the police report.

Bones said she believes her grandson, who turns 3 next month, must have woken up from a nap in a first-floor bedroom and went upstairs to use the bathroom. Looking out of the window, he saw some children on the street and was talking to them before he fell, a neighbor told police.

Child Protective Services was contacted about the matter, according to the police report.
