A one-year-old child was rushed to hospital with a serious head injury after he fell from the third floor of a block of flats in Birmingham.

West Midlands Police have launched an investigation into how the baby managed to fall from the flats in Reservoir Road on Friday evening.

According to reports in the Daily Mail, the building is believed to be a YMCA hostel for vulnerable adults.

West Midlands Police said in a statement: "We are investigating after a child fell from the window of a flat on Reservoir Road, Erdington just before 7.30pm last night.

"The one-year-old child was taken to hospital with a serious head injury, where he remains today as enquiries continue into how he came about his injuries."

A witness told the Daily Mail: "I didn't see it happen, but I heard screaming from a woman. There were so many cops and ambulance people here, it was gut wrenching.

"I heard from other residents here that there was another young kid inside when it happened, I'm praying the child is going to be okay."
