A three-year-old boy has died after falling from a window at a block of flats in Dundee.
It is understood the child suffered serious head injuries after he fell from the second floor of the building in Denhead Crescent, Dundee.
Emergency services were called to the street in the Charleston area of the town at around 2.30pm on Friday.
The boy was taken by ambulance to the city's Ninewells Hospital but medical staff were unable to revive him.
Police began an investigation into the death on Friday evening, with investigators filming the scene.
The child will not be publicly identified until his next of kin have been informed.
One local resident said: "It seems to have been a horrible, horrible accident. We didn't hear or see anything but all of a sudden there was a commotion and the ambulance and police were here. It is awful to think this could happen to a child so young."
It is unclear how the child came to fall from the window.
A spokesman for Tayside Police said: "Tayside Police were called to Denhead Crescent shortly after 2.30pm where a three-year-old boy was found to have sustained a serious head injury. He was taken by ambulance to Ninewells Hospital where he sadly died."
Police are still at the scene and an investigation will be carried out.
