COUNCIL BLUFFS (AP) -  Police in Council Bluffs say an 18-month-old boy has died after falling from a bunk bed ladder.

   The Daily Nonpareil reports that the accident happened around 10:30 a.m. Friday at the Featherstone Apartments.

   Investigators say the toddler was playing with his 3-year-old brother when he fell off the ladder. Emergency responders took the boy to a local hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead. The child's name has not been released.

   Police Sgt. Chad Meyers says the boys were playing in an upstairs bedroom when the toddler fell off the ladder. The child's father was at home at the time.

   Police say foul play is not suspected. An autopsy has been ordered.

   Last month, a 2-year-old boy survived a fall from a second-story window at the apartments.
