Police say a toddler was injured after falling from a window on the second floor of an apartment in Boone, Iowa.

Authorities say the 17-month-old child apparently climbed onto a couch Tuesday morning and pushed against the screen. The screen popped out and the child fell.

Authorities say the toddler landed on grass and was awake, breathing and crying when police arrived.

The child was taken to a Boone hospital and then flown to a Des Moines hospital. There was no immediate word on the child's condition.
