A woman living on the ground floor of the complex heard the child screaming and called for help.

Amanda Beaudry says the boy was responsive but had scratches, a cut behind his ear and a large lump on the back of his head.

She says his mother was with him by the time paramedics arrived and Beaudry has since learned the toddler suffered a fractured skull and internal injuries.

An RCMP news release says police and officials from the Ministry of Child and Family Development are looking into what happened. (CKIZ, CKNW)
