BOSTON (AP) – Boston police say a 9-month-old boy died from severe head trauma after falling from a fourth-floor window of an apartment building.

The child was pronounced dead at Boston Medical Center on Thursday shortly after the accident, which happened about 10:15 a.m. on Cunard Street in the city’s Roxbury neighborhood.

Neighbors said the baby’s mother was out of town and the child was in the care of his father at the time.
