SEATTLE — A 6-year-old boy who fell out a third-story window in Seattle suffered head and leg injuries, but is expected to survive.

Police say he was sitting on the window sill blowing bubbles Sunday afternoon when he fell. He’s being treated at Harborview Medical Center.

The window screen was either open or removed.
