SEATTLE (AP) -- A fire department official says a 2-year-old boy and his mother were injured when he tumbled out of a fifth floor apartment window and she jumped out in an attempt to rescue him.

North Highline Fire Battalion Chief Dave Malo says the boy landed Thursday on a fourth-floor balcony, as did his mother.

Malo tells KOMO the boy suffered a head injury but was conscious and alert when medics arrived. His mother suffered a possible broken ankle. Both were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Malo says the falls happened at the Coronado Springs Apartments in White Center, south of Seattle.
