Girl gravely injured following balcony fall


A SEVEN-YEAR-OLD girl is said to be in a serious condition in intensive care after falling 10 metres from a balcony in the Costa del Sol’s Rincon de la Victoria.

The child, who was apparently playing with a friend when she went over, is on a ventilator and being treated at the Materno Infantil hospital in Malaga.

Neighbours say they alerted emergency services after hearing the girl’s father shout “my girl, my girl.”  They then saw her lying on the ground, bleeding from her mouth and nose.  She is thought to have regained consciousness before being transferred to hospital.

Police are now investigating the events leading up to her fall but believe it was an accident.
