A 5-year-old girl remains in critical condition Saturday after she fell out of her 7th floor bedroom window.
The accident happened at the Bridgewater Place apartment complex in Oakland Park.
Two adults and two other children were inside at the time of the accident.
Police say the victim's 8-year-old brother went to check on his sister. That's when he found her walking along a window sill near her bunk bed. As she was walking back toward her bed, she fell into a window screen, tumbling seven stories to the ground.
The little girl was taken to Broward Medical Center.
Investigators say she landed on a patch of grass. They noted a palm tree, concrete sidewalk, and a fence just steps away, indicating how much worse the impact could have been.
The Department of Children and Families is now investigating this incident.
