‘It appears the patient has fallen through the flyscreen of a window from the second floor of the building around five metres onto the ground,’ Inspector Watkins said.

‘It’s obviously a worrying time for the family and they did a great job comforting the patient until we arrived on scene.’

‘The young girl is extremely fortunate not to have sustained more serious injuries.’
