NEWARK - A child who fell out of a second-floor window and onto the concrete below is expected to be OK, according to Newark police.

Police arriving at the scene on the 300-block of Orange Street just after 11 a.m. say they found a 3-year-old being cradled by his mother outside a home.

The mother told police the boy was playing near an open but screened window when he reached for a toy and fell through the screen. She says she tried to grab him but could not reach him.

Officials say the child suffered a head injury and some scratches, but his injuries are not considered life-threatening.
