Boy, 3, Tumbled Out Third-Floor Window While Playing Spider-Man

ANAHEIM ( — A 3-year-old boy was hospitalized Sunday night after he accidentally fell out a third-floor window while playing Spider-Man.

The fall happened just before 9:15 p.m. at an apartment building in the 700 block of East South Street, police said.

The boy, who was with another child, was pretending to be Spider-Man and jumping on the bed when he somehow tumbled out of the window.

Officials say his fall may have been broken by bushes.

The boy was conscious when he was transported to UCI Medical Center in Orange. His injuries are being called “minor” by officials.
