A young girl was injured on Tuesday evening after falling out of a second-storey window in northeast Calgary.

Emergency crews arrived at the condo building on Skyview Ranch Way just after 8 p.m.

EMS said the girl suffered head injuries and was taken to hospital in serious but stable condition.

According to Alberta Health Services, six children in Calgary were taken to hospital in the first four months of 2021 after being injured falling from windows.

Toddlers and preschoolers are at the highest risk of falling from a window or balcony, AHS said, but it may happen at any age.
