A one-year-old boy who fell from an apartment balcony has been released from the hospital.

The child fell from the second floor balcony in the Mission Mill Creek Apartments on Arbor Ridge Drive in Antioch Monday morning.

The boy was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries.

A woman who lives in the apartment was babysitting the child.

She told News 2 she was outside on the balcony with some children when she stepped inside for a moment. She says the boy slipped through the railing and fell.

The woman babysitting the child said she plans to put up some protective barriers on the railing to prevent another similar incident from occurring.

News 2 has learned the child's injuries were not serious and the boy should be okay.

The babysitter called the incident a "tragic accident."
