PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) - A two-year-old boy is recovering after falling out of a second-story window at a Petersburg apartment complex Thursday night.

Petersburg Police Captain Brian Braswell said the toddler climbed on a chair and fell out the window of an apartment in the Pin Oaks apartment complex on Sandlewood Court.

The boy was taken to a local hospital with a chipped tooth, but out of precaution was transferred to VCU Medical Center out of fear for unknown internal injuries.

Police said Friday that the child suffered injuries that are not life threatening and is expected to be released from the hospital.

The mother of the child as well as other adults were inside the home at the time of the incident, Braswell said.

The investigation is ongoing, and no charges have been filed as of Friday afternoon.
