VANCOUVER, Wash. – A one-year-old boy fell out a second-story window of a Vancouver apartment building Sunday afternoon.

The boy’s injuries are unclear. Sgt. Fred Neiman with the Clark County Sheriff's Office said the boy was alert and crying after he fell at around 3:15 p.m. He was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

The boy pushed on a window screen until it gave away, Neiman said. He landed on dirt, not pavement.

It happened at the Steeple Chase Apartments at 4617 Northeast Saint John’s Road.
