MIAMI - A 2-year-old girl is recovering after falling early Monday from a fourth-floor window of an apartment in Miami.
A palm tree under the window helped slow the speed of the fall and the child landed in some bushes, Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll told WSVN.
"The impact of hitting the palm tree actually guided her toward the shrubs that was on the grassy area, which provided for a more softer fall than actually striking the pavement," Carroll said.
The child was being cuddled by her uncle and was crying when crews arrived at the scene in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood, Carroll told the television station.
The girl was then taken to a hospital for treatment. No additional details were immediately available.
