Boy, 6, Falls from Window

In yet another incident of a child falling from an open window, a 6 year old from Gothenburg fell 6 floors to the ground Friday night, but survived with no life-threatening injuries. He is now being cared for in a local hospital.

Police say a man tried to catch the boy as he fell, and this may have saved his life.

Police don't think any foul play was involved in the incident, saying he had locked himself in his room, and must have then climbed out of the window.

The is the latest in a series of incidents involving children falling from great heights in Sweden, several school pupils were killed last month when they fell out of a school window.
