PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — A young boy was taken to the hospital after Philadelphia police said he fell from a window in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood.
It happened around 5 p.m. Saturday on the 500 block of East Girard Avenue.
Police say the boy, around 5, was in a bedroom playing with two siblings, a 7-year-old and an 11-month-old, when he fell from a second-story window.
