PERRY TOWNSHIP, OH (WOIO) - A 20-month-old boy is recovering after falling out a window in a two story house.

The accident happened Sunday around 1:15 p.m. on Saratoga Avenue when parents say they heard the pitter patter of feet and then saw something fall past the window.

The toddler was supposed to be taking a nap in his bedroom.

The parents ran outside and found the boy in a bush.

The toddler was rushed to Akron Children's Hospital and did not appear to have any life threatening injuries.

Perry Police say they believe the boy was pressing on the window screen and it popped through.

No criminal charges are expected at this time.
