A two-year-old is in good condition after falling from a second-floor porch in Bridgeport Saturday morning, according to police.

Police said the toddler fell from an apartment porch at 260 Summerfield Ave. in Bridgeport around 9:30 a.m. yesterday. He was rushed to Bridgeport Hospital and later transferred to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment.

At the time of the accident, police said the child's injuries were potentially life threatening. He was upgraded from stable to good condition on Tuesday, according to police.

Authorities said the toddler was in the care of a non-family member who was also looking after several other children at the time.

The Bridgeport Major Crime Squad and Fire Department responded to the scene, along with detectives from the Bridgeport Police Youth Bureau. The state Department of Children and Family Services was also notified, police said.

The investigation is ongoing. No charges have been filed.
