CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) - A Clear Lake toddler is recovering from minor injuries after falling from a second-story window.

Police tell the Mason City Globe Gazette (http://bit.ly/1pw2foQ ) that the girl climbed onto the back of a couch in her family’s apartment and pushed out a window screen, falling about 15 feet to the ground. The girl was taken to a local hospital, treated and released.

Police say the live-in boyfriend of the toddler’s mother - who was out - was babysitting the girl at the time of the accident.

Police say the investigation continues, and that charges could be filed.
