CHICAGO - Chicago police say a 1-year-old boy is hospitalized after falling from a residential building's fourth-story window.

Police say the boy fell about 8:25 p.m. Monday from the Parkway Gardens Homes apartment complex. He was taken to Comer Children's Hospital, where his condition was stabilized. Details about the baby's injuries were not immediately released.

Charisma Willis says she found the child on a lawn outside the building and cradled him until he stopped crying and an ambulance arrived.

Willis tells the Chicago Tribune that when the baby's mother rushed outside after realizing her son had fallen, she kept repeating, ``My baby, my baby. Is he OK?''

Residents of the apartment complex said the mother was helping one of her children with homework when the boy crawled out the window and fell.
