Police say the 4-year-old boy who tumbled from the third story of an apartment building in Spring Park was playing Nintendo Wii at his grandparents' home at the time of the accident.
Officials say they believe the momentum of playing the game carried Blake McShane through the screen and down to the ground below.
It is estimated that he fell 25 feet, and he did not have a heartbeat when first responders arrived. Crews were able to revive him using CPR.
Orono Police Chief Correy Farniok told FOX 9 News the boy was airlifted to North Memorial Medical Center, where he is listed in critical condition.
