Hartford, Connecticut (The Weekly Vice) - Marilis Santiago, a 22-year-old Connecticut woman was arrested Saturday after her 2-year-old child fell from a third story apartment window while she was allegedly busy getting high.

According to police, Santiago was smoking marijuana at her kitchen table when her toddler son fell through an open 3rd story apartment window and landed on the pavement below. The window did not reportedly have a screen.

The child was taken to Connecticut Children's Medical center where he was treated for a fractured arm, facial lacerations and a bruised liver. The child is expected to make a full recovery.

Santiago admitted to smoking pot, but said she wasn't smoking right at the time the child fell from the window. She summed the allegation up by telling reporters "who doesn't smoke now-adays. Everybody Smoke."

Santiago was booked into jail on charges of risk of injury to a minor, possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana within 1500 feet of a school.

The victim was taken into protective custody and placed with a relative.
