A 2-year-old boy is hospitalized Tuesday afternoon after he fell out of a window at the Royal Palm Terrace Apartments in Bradenton.

The mother was cleaning their second-floor apartment at 5006 26th St. E. and had the windows open for fresh air, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

Two boys -- a 2- and 4-year-old -- were in the apartment when the mother heard the older one say something about not going out the window.

She ran to the window and noticed that one of the children was not there, ran downstairs and found him on the ground, about 15 feet down from the window.

The boy was responsive and appeared OK, but was taken to a hospital for examination.
