Police say a 4-year-old girl was critically injured in a fall from a second-story window in north Philadelphia.

A police spokesman says the girl was playing in the back bedroom in the home when she climbed onto the windowsill of an open window and fell at about 7 p.m. Saturday.

Police say the girl had arm and leg injuries and a possible head injury. She was taken to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and placed in critical condition.
