SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego County officials say a 7-year-old boy is in critical condition after falling 35 feet from the third-floor window of a Del Mar hotel.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Dustin Lopez tells KGTV https://bit.ly/1mjGWoj ) that the boy and his family were visiting San Diego from Korea and staying at the Clarion Del Mar Inn. He says the boy was left playing alone in the hotel room when he fell Thursday, landing in a parking lot. Relatives discovered the fall when they checked on him.

Lopez says he doesn’t know if the boy opened the window or if it was already open but the department’s child abuse unit is handling the case.

The boy was flown to Rady Children’s Hospital, where Lopez says he’s being treated for a broken leg and head trauma.
