Girl, 4, in critical condition after falling out Westwood apartment window
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A four-year-old is hospitalized in critical condition after falling from the fourth floor of an apartment in Westwood.
The young girl fell out the window of an apartment in the 2700 block of East Tower Drive, according to the Cincinnati Police Department.
The four-year-old is now at Children’s Hospital.
The Criminal Investigation Section arrived at the scene shortly after the incident.
Jeannie Callahan lives on the first floor and was in her apartment when she heard a loud thud.
”I jumped and ran out. My other daughter followed me out. My oldest daughter was already there calling 911 because she was here picking up my grandson and saw the baby fall out of the window,” Callahan said.
She says the 4-year-old’s mother rushed out of the building soon afterward in a panic, “totally out of it.”
The neighbors worked to keep the child calm until medics arrived.
“We were trying to calm the baby down, keep her still while my daughter was calling 911,” Callahan said.
Callahan says she didn’t notice any major physical injuries on the girl.
”It seems like she had a small cut on her chin and maybe bit her tongue because she was moving her arms,” she said. “She was moving her legs. She whimpered a little. She cried a little bit but wasn’t crying. She kind of looked around. I don’t know if she could really focus or not.”
Police are not releasing any information about the circumstances leading up to the fall.
”I’m hoping that she’s okay,” Callahan said. “We have a lot of prayers going up. By the grace of God everything will be okay.”
