A Reading boy suffered a broken wrist and head Thursday evening when he fell off a roof in Reading. According to Police, two children were playing on a garage rooftop at north 6th and Elm streets when a 9-year-old fell. The child's injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.

This is the second time this month a child has fallen while playing on a rooftop in Reading.

22-month-old Joshua Garcia was riding a tricycle on top of an apartment building on North Front Street in Reading on July 2 when he fell two stories to the ground. The toddler died less a week later.
