OAKLAND PARK, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a 5-year-old girl is hospitalized in critical condition after falling from a 7th-story window.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office says the two adults and three children were in the Oakland Park apartment Friday night when the 5-year-old went to bed. The girl’s 8-year-old brother later saw her walking along the windowsill near her bunk bed.

Authorities say the girl suffered multiple traumatic injuries when she lost her balance and fell through a screen to the grass below.

Bystanders took the girl and her mother to a hospital. Authorities say the girl is in critical condition.

Police and Florida’s Department of Children and Families are investigating.
