LOS ANGELES -- A 2-year-old boy injured in a fall Saturday was still

in serious condition Monday.

The boy, who fell from a third-story window Saturday, had stable vital

signs but was still being kept under sedation and was breathing will the

help of a respirator, said Steve Rutledge, a spokesman for Childrens

Hospital Los Angeles.

The child apparently pushed through a screen before falling Saturday

afternoon from the window of a home in the 200 block of West Lomita

Avenue. His left wrist was fractured and his head and ribs were bruised

in the fall.

"He's definitely showing some signs of improvement from when he was

first brought in," Rutledge said Monday.
