Deputy fire chief Jeffrey Gardell said crews raced to the house on Hancock Street around 10 a.m. and found the toddler in his mother's arms.

"He had a visible bump on his forehead, but he was alert and conscious, crying along with the mom. I guess the kid did fall probably 12 to 14 feet," he told WBZ NewsRadio 1030.

It appears the boy pushed through a window screen.

He was taken to the hospital to be examined and treated.
