Toddler survives fall from second-story window

A 1-year-old girl was transported to Arkansas Children's Hospital with only minor injuries Tuesday morning after falling from a second-story window.

Conway police were dispatched to a residence in the 1400 block of Hartje Lane around 9:30 a.m., after a caller reported the child fell through a window screen while leaning against the window.

According to officials, the child sustained only minor injuries from the fall and was transported to the hospital as a precaution.

An officer on scene said the incident looked "purely accidental."

The incident was reported to the Arkansas Department of Human Services as required by law. The toddler's 21-year-old mother was not cited.
