The father of a four-year-old boy who fell from a ninth-story apartment has been charged in the incident, Montgomery County Police announced Monday.
The boy suffered life-threatening injuries Oct. 11 after falling from a building in the 8800 block of Piney Branch Road. A tree helped break his fall, but he remains hospitalized.
A woman found him crying in a bush and called 911.
The boy's father, Christopher Keith Harley, 30, has been charged with child neglect and leaving a child under the age of eight unattended.
He was arrested Oct. 26 and is out on bond awaiting a December court date.
