READING, Pa. -

An infant escaped serious injury when part of a ceiling fell in Reading on Friday.

Rain water leaking through the roof of a building in the 400 block of Elm Street caused the drop ceiling to come crashing down on the 1-month-old baby, officials said.

Emergency crews were summoned to the scene around 3:30 p.m.

An evaluation of the baby revealed no serious injuries.
