EAST FLATBUSH, Brooklyn (WABC) -- A four-year-old boy died after falling out of a window in Brooklyn on Monday.

The incident happened just after 2 p.m. at 3301 Farragut Road in the East Flatbush section.

The four-year-old boy fell from a fourth-floor window onto the pavement into an alley along Farragut Road.

According to police, the child was found with injuries due to a fall from an elevated position.

The victim taken to Kings County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

"It was awful," said one witness who saw the unfortunate scene of the lifeless body on the ground. "I'm trying to get it out my head. You could see there was no life in him."

This is the third time in a week that a child has fallen out from a window in New York City.

The most recent other two cases took place in Harlem, where both were hurt but alive.

It's unclear if there were any barriers on the window of this latest incident, or what led to the four-year-old from falling from the fourth-floor apartment.

The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.

An investigation is ongoing.
