PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A Portland police spokesman says a 4-year-old boy has died after a fall from an upper-story window at an apartment building.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says firefighters and police responded Wednesday evening to the Miraflores Apartments after a report that a child had fallen from a window and was critically hurt.

Simpson says the boy died at a hospital.

The spokesman says while preliminary information indicates the death may have been an accidental fall, detectives from homicide and the child abuse team will be part of the investigation.

The boy was not immediately identified.
