LOS ANGELES — A 7-year-old girl was in grave condition after she fell about 15 feet out of an apartment window in Los Angeles on Saturday, according to multiple reports.
Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey told KTLA the girl was jumping on a sofa around 1 p.m. Saturday in an apartment in Koreatown when she fell. Humphrey told the City News Service that the window had been open at the time of the incident, though it had a screen.
Authorities told KTLA the girl's aunt was home when she fell.
Humphrey said the girl hit the back of her head on a concrete path when she landed, according to the City News Service. He said that when paramedics arrived, the girl was having difficulty breathing, and she later underwent surgery.
She was last listed Sunday in grave condition, the City News Service reported.
Humphrey urged families to use caution when placing furniture near windows to ensure the safety of children.
