LACEY, Wash. – Authorities say a 4-year-old girl died after falling from a second-floor window southwest of Tacoma in Lacey.
The Olympian reported firefighters were called to a duplex in the 4400 block of Quail Drive Southeast at about 8 p.m. Sunday.
Lacey Fire District 3 Battalion Chief Pat Harn says the parents of the child had put her to bed around 7 p.m. and sometime after that she fell out a window and landed on a cement patio.
Harn didn’t know if the window was already open or if the girl had opened it.
The girl died later at Providence St. Peter Hospital.
