A 4-year-old is in critical condition after falling from a fifth floor window in the Civic Plaza complex Tuesday, June 14, 2016. Here's a look at that six-story building.

Boise police and Ada County paramedics responded to Front Street near South Avenue A around 6:15 p.m. Tuesday after a 4-year-old boy apparently fell out of a fifth story window.

Police said a citizen saw the injured child on the ground and called 911. The little boy was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, where he was listed in critical condition about 9:30 p.m.

Police said they contacted a parent inside the apartment building and are continuing the investigation. No details about the child's injuries or what led to the fall were available late Tuesday.
