Details are now emerging about the tragic death of a toddler at the Crystal Tower Apartments on Terrace Road in East Cleveland.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has identified the little boy who fell from the apartment window.

Alijah R. Glenn, 2, fell from the 17th floor of the apartment building Monday night.

Investigators say little Alijah was rough housing in a back bedroom of his grandmother's  apartment with his three year old brother, but there were no adult witnesses to help determine just how the glass in the window broke.

"I was looking out the couch window when I heard the glass.  I thought it was adults fighting outside, then I got a call that some kid fell out the window," said neighbor Kim Johnson.

The little boy was rushed to the hospital, where he died.

Police tell 19 Action News the incident appears to be an accident and foul play is not suspected.
