While sleepwalking can be perceived as comical, it's actually a potentially dangerous affliction. One youngster who suffers from the disorder wound up getting hurt in the early Friday morning hours after a sleepwalking episode that found the minor tumbling out of a third-story window, according to City News Service. The boy, 13, fell from the window of a Compton townhome just after 2 a.m. He broke his arm when he hit the ground, say authorities who responded to the scene.
