Police in Hartford, Conn., have charged a 25-year-old babysitter with risk of injury after the 2-year-old boy in her care fell off a roof, according to police.
When Chantelle Turner was arraigned on Tuesday, she was ordered to have no contact with children.
Police said it appears that the boy opened a window at Turner's residence at 32 Mahl Ave. in Hartford, crawled onto a second-floor roof and fell off.
Hartford police responded to 1978 Main St., located around the corner about 400 feet away (see a map here), just before 5:30 p.m. ET on Monday and found the little boy crying and suffering from visible head injuries, police said.
It is not yet known if the boy walked the distance on his own or whether someone brought him there.
American Medical Response took the child to a hospital, where he was diagnosed with a skull fracture and cranial bleeding, according to police.
Police said the child was supposed to be in Turner's care and she told officers she had fallen asleep.
Turner was charged with risk of injury to a minor and arraigned on Tuesday, where bond was set at $100,000.
She was ordered to have no contact with children under the age of 18 and is due back in court on Sept. 18.
The baby is expected to recover.
