ROXBURY – A 5-year-old child was taken to hospital late Wednesday night after falling from a third story window of a Roxbury home.
It happened just after 10 p.m. on rue Calumet.
Two witnesses told police they saw a screen fall through the window and then saw the child fall and land on a car.
Boston police say a man ran from the house, grabbed the child and drove off. Police later learned that the man had taken the child to an area hospital.
The fall seems to have been accidental, caused by the child leaning against the screen.
The 5-year-old is in stable condition.
