Toddler survives fall from second floor window

JUNO BEACH, Fla. - A toddler is recovering after falling from a second-floor window of his family's home in Palm Beach County.

Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue spokesman Keith Bryer told the Palm Beach Post it appears the 2-year-old boy pushed the screen of the open window and fell 16-feet to the gravel below on Tuesday night.

The family told authorities they'd been cleaning with a chemical and opened the window to air out the house.

The child was taken to St. Mary's Medical Center. His condition was not immediately available.
