Langley girl, 3, injured in fall from house

A three-year-old girl is in hospital after falling from a second storey window in Langley Sunday afternoon.

RCMP said the girl was playing with her seven-year-old sister on a window seat at their family home in the 19600-block of 68 Avenue when she pushed on a window screen that gave way.

Sgt. Ravinder Pawar told CTV News the girl fell about 20 feet and landed on her side on the asphalt driveway.

"She left the scene in an air ambulance. Paramedics estimated that she had a broken arm, broken leg and internal injuries," Pawar said.

She was unconscious when she arrived at the BC Children's Hospital, but has since regained consciousness. Doctors said she is in stable but serious condition.

Police are satisfied that the fall was an accident, and will not be recommending charges.
