    Police say a 5-year-old boy survived a fall from a seven-story window. 

    Officials say Attila Husenyli was leaning on a window screen at a condominium in Quincy, Massachusetts, Saturday when it popped out. 

    Quincy Police Sgt. Dan Flaherty says Husenyli held onto the screen and landed in a bush, which cushioned his fall. The child's parents were in another room at the time. 

    Husenyli did not have any broken bones, only scrapes and bruises. He was taken by ambulance to a hospital, then returned home. 

    While Husenyli's fall is still under investigation, Flaherty says it appears to have been a "freak accident."

    Neighbors can't understand how such a thing could have happened.

    "I personally believe the parents should have taken more measure of safety," said neighbor Jaitan Kumar.

    Police said no charges will be filed against the parents.
