Boy, 1, falls three floors, injuries minor

Police in Nebraska said a toddler who plummeted three stories and landed partly on his face suffered only a minor injury.

Jacob Bettin, a police spokesman, said 1-year-old Dennis Nimely was playing on the third-floor balcony of an apartment in Omaha's Wentworth Townhomes when he fell through a small opening, KETV, Omaha, reported Wednesday.

The toddler was taken to Nebraska Medical Center for treatment of his injury. Police said no arrests were made.
