A 1-year-old boy has been taken to the hospital after he fell from the 11th floor of a downtown Minneapolis apartment building Sunday night, police said.

The Minneapolis Police Department was called to the scene at 350 S. Fifth Street around 8:15 p.m. on a report a child had fallen.

When they arrived, they found fire officials tending to the child and keeping a crowd of people away from the boy, police said. They also found the boy's father, who said the boy fell from their apartment on the 11th floor, police said.

The child was transported by ambulance to Hennepin County Medical Center. His condition was not known Monday morning.
