HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A Hartford babysitter has been charged with risk of injury to a minor after a 2-year-old boy she was responsible for was found injured in a city street after falling from a window.

Police say Chantelle Turner fell asleep while babysitting on Monday.

Authorities say the boy opened a window, got onto a roof and fell. Police responded to a 911 call reporting that the child was found bleeding.

He was taken to Connecticut Children’s Hospital with several injuries including a fractured skull. He is expected to recover.

It was not known Tuesday if the 25-year-old Turner is represented by a lawyer.
