EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities have identified the 2-year-old Ohio boy who fell to his death from a 17th-floor apartment window that gave way.

The medical examiner in Cleveland says the victim was Alijah Glenn.

Officers were called to the Crystal Tower Apartments in East Cleveland about 7:40 p.m. Monday.

Lt. James Naylor tells The Plain Dealer newspaper in Cleveland (bit.ly/L58mUm) that the boy was at home with his mother and grandmother, who didn't see him fall through the closed window that gave way, but heard it happen. Naylor says windows in the apartment extend to the floor.

Police say the fall appears accidental.
