KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - A 41-year-old man is charged with attempted murder after he tossed his son off a second story hotel balcony in Kissimmee.
    
The 2-year-old is expected to recover from injuries received Tuesday. Police say Juan Pablo Maradiaga also jumped from the balcony. A man pulling into the Budget Inn parking lot called 911.
    
Maradiaga had a severe leg injury and was taken to a hospital. Once he's released, officials say he'll be taken to jail.
    
The child was flown to Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando. His injuries include a fractured arm and abrasions but his mother told WESH (http://bit.ly/1iUf5vp ) he's "a miracle baby."
    
Police say surveillance video shows the father walking out of the room and throwing the baby over the railing.
    
The Florida Department of Children and Families is investigating.
