A toddler who tumbled from a third-floor window at an apartment complex in Austin escaped serious injury, police said.

Lt. Doug Dukes said told the Austin American-Statesman the 23-month-old fell through a screened window while playing with other children Friday afternoon.

He said he believes the fall was an accident.

The child was taken to an area hospital for observation.

It was not clear whether the child landed on something that cushioned the fall.
