DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Police say a young girl fell two stories out of an apartment complex window in Dallas around 10:10 p.m. Friday.

Police are calling the case a “home accident,” and that the girl fell after pushing against a loose in-the-window air conditioning unit.

The incident happened on Outrider Lane.

The child, whose age is unknown but might be younger than five, was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for multiple “abrasions and cuts,” police say.

Child Protective Services was called to the scene, but did not see a need to remove the child from the home.
