Police say a 4-year-old boy fell from a 10th floor balcony at the apartment complex.

They say he was on the balcony facing the back. The balconies look like typical apartment balconies with a railing all around.

He was taken to Jacobi Medical Center in critical condition.

It's unclear who else was at home when this happened.

Some neighbors who were home at the time, heard the commotion.

"I did hear people screaming but again, you know, I got kids and I don't want them to see anything like that. So I just stayed inside the house," resident Mike said.
