A five-year-old boy died after falling from a third-floor window yesterday in Corona, police said.
The child, William Chen, fell from a bathroom window at around 1:30 p.m. from a multi-family building still under construction at 35-59 99th Street, police said.
Chen was found unconscious and unresponsive with severe injuries to his body, according to police. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
