A 3-year-old is recovering from a head injury after falling out of a second story window in West Jordan on Tuesday.  It happened at the girl’s home near 79th South and 67th West.

Police said the girl accidentally pushed out a screen and fell 12-feet onto a concrete patio.  She was conscious when emergency crews arrived.  She was flown to Primary Children’s Medical Center with head trauma.

“I’m sure that, being a mother, we always tell our kids not to do certain things, so hopefully this is a wake up call to the other child that live here,” said Rebecca Sternberg, a neighbor.

Paramedics said the little girl is expected to make a full recovery.
