PORTLAND, Ore. — A 2-year-old child who fell from a fourth-floor window in Portland is expected to recover.

Portland police said the family took the child to the hospital in a cab and the toddler was treated for nonlife-threatening injuries.

No further details were available but investigators said it appeared to be an accident.
