Authorities say a baby survived a fall from a third-story window near Denver's Cherry Creek neighborhood.
Mark Watson, a spokesman for the Denver Fire Department, says firefighters were called at about 12:30 p.m. Saturday, and the baby was crying and moving as it was rushed to the hospital.
People inside the apartment reportedly told police they thought the boy was sleeping. At some point, he woke up, climbed on a chair and fell through the screen of an open window.
Watson tells The Denver Post that police will investigate what led to the fall.
