CHICAGO (AP) - Police say a 3-year-old boy fell to his death from the 17th floor window of a Chicago apartment building.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the boy was found in bushes below and taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say the boy’s fatal plunge about 10:40 p.m. Tuesday was being investigated as an accident.
