EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) — Police say a 2-year-old boy fell to his death after a window gave way in his family's 17th-floor apartment in East Cleveland.

Officers were called to the Crystal Tower Apartments at about 7:40 p.m. Monday after the child fell. He was pronounced dead at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital.

Lt. James Naylor tells The Plain Dealer newspaper in Cleveland (bit.ly/L58mUm) that the boy was at home with his mother and grandmother, who didn't see him fall through the closed window, but heard it happen. Naylor says windows in the apartment extend to the floor.

Police say the fall appears accidental. The child was not identified.
