ATLANTA -- A 10 year old was injured when a portion of the ceiling crumbled and fell in inside the family's home.

Atlanta Police Capt. Scott Kreher said investigators believe some drywall got wet and collapsed.

It happened at around 3:40 a.m. Wednesday at a house on Commonwealth Avenue SE near Grant Park.

The child was not seriously injured after being hit by the falling drywall but apparently had a heart murmur and was taken to a nearby hospital. A woman inside the house also suffered cuts to her arms.

A resident of the home said the family was renting the property and had already planned to move out Wednesday morning.
