A 5-year-old boy was rushed to the hospital Tuesday evening after he fell from a Bronx apartment window, according to the NYPD.

Police said the boy fell from the fifth-floor window of a building on Bristow Street near East 170th Street around 7:40 p.m.

He was taken to Lincoln Medical Center in critical but stable condition, according to police.

An NYPD spokesman said there was a window guard on at least a portion of the window. Though it remains unclear how the boy got around the guard, police said there is no criminality suspected at this time.
