Officers arrived to find a one-year-old boy with serious injuries. He was taken to hospital and is expected to survive.

Foul play is not suspected.

“It appears that the toddler pushed out a window screen before falling,” Hwang said.

“We are so thankful that the toddler is recovering as this incident has taken an emotional toll on everyone, especially the parents. We remind all parents and caregivers to be mindful of the location of young children at all times.”
