A 1-year-old boy fell from a second-floor window Tuesday morning on the Near West Side.

The child was on the second floor of a building in the 1600 block of West Maypole Avenue, when he apparently pushed out a window screen and fell two stories onto the pavement about 9 a.m., police said.

The child was initially taken in critical condition to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, police said. His condition has since been stabilized, authorities said.

Area Central detectives are investigating.
