BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- A 7-year-old boy was rushed to the hospital late Friday morning after falling from a 5th-floor balcony of a Birmingham condo, ABC 33/40 has learned.

Fire and rescue crews were called to the Regency Crown Condominiums in the 1200 block of Beacon Parkway East around 10:30 a.m. Upon arriving, emergency workers found the boy unresponsive before transporting the victim to Children's of Alabama Hospital.

According to Herald Stewart, a condo board of directors' member, the boy was found on the ground shortly after the fall by a man who works at the complex. Stewart said the victim and his family have lived there for "a couple of years" and described the boy as "happy-go-lucky."
