3-year-old falls from window in Throgs Neck

A toddler is recovering tonight after taking a terrible fall out of a window.

Police say the 3-year-old fell three stories out of an apartment window on Huntington Avenue.

The child was taken to Jacobi Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

Neighbors say the toddler is autistic and the window the child fell out of doesn't have guard rails.

Police have not yet released where the parents were when the child fell.
