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.
