PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A four-year-old boy was critically injured when he fell from the second floor window at a home in the Kingsessing section of Philadelphia Saturday morning.

This happened around 8:30 a.m. at the home located on the 5400 block of Malcolm Street.

The child suffered severe injuries to his head and face and was taken to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia where he remains in critical but stable condition.

Neighbors describe him as a happy, young child who is always with his mother.

Investigators are trying to figure out how the boy was able to make it out the window. It is unknown at this time if this was an accident, or just negligence.

No arrests have been made in this case, which is being handled by the Special Victims Unit.
