PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Authorities are calling a 4-year-old Philadelphia boy who survived a three-story fall overnight "very, very lucky."

Police said a passing motorist called 911 after spotting the boy lying on the ground outside a south Philadelphia row home at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday.

He was rushed to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and reported in stable condition with a possible fracture along with bumps and bruises.

Chief Inspector Scott Small said the boy was playing with his 12-year-old brother and apparently fell through a screen of his bedroom window.

Small said the incident appears to be an accident and he didn't expect anyone to be charged. He said "This child is very, very lucky."
