A boy was transported to the hospital after falling out a third-floor window in Elizabeth.

Police responded to the 200 block of Ripley Place shortly before 8:30 p.m. for a report of an injured child.

Upon arrival, it was determined that the 3-year-old boy fell out the home's third-floor window onto a second-story awning before falling to the sidewalk.

According to the city spokesperson, the child appears to have avoided serious injuries but remains at University Hospital as a precaution.

Authorities have assessed the situation, and after speaking to the child's father and examining the circumstances, the incident appears to have been accidental.
