A 3-year-old boy lost his life Tuesday night falling from a window of a residential building on Chicago’s Near North Side.

Authorities said around 10:40 p.m., the minor fell out of an apartment window on the 17th floor of a building in the 1100 block of North LaSalle Drive and died after being taken to Lurie Children’s Hospital.

Investigators believe that the boy would have pushed a wire mesh from the window before falling from the top of the building and landing in a bush.

The incident is being investigated as accidental.
