BURBANK, Calif. (AP) -- A 3-year-old boy who fell out a third-story window in California was saved by a quick-acting couple who threw out a mattress to break his fall.

KABC-TV reports Konrad Lightner and his wife, Jennifer, were moving out of their Burbank apartment Sunday when they noticed the toddler and his sister throwing their toys out the window.

When they saw the little boy throw his leg over the windowsill, Konrad rushed to put down the mattress. He was able to break the child's fall, placing him onto the mattress.

The toddler was taken to a local hospital for evaluation, but he suffered no major injuries.

A neighbor rushed to get the boy's parents, who were unaware of what happened but grateful for the rescue.
