MIAMI – A 2-year-old girl is stable after falling from a fourth floor window of an apartment building in Miami, authorities confirmed.

The incident occurred around 7:30 a.m. Monday in the area of Southwest Eighth Street and 27th Avenue in the city’s Little Havana neighborhood.

The building is about 20 stories high.

Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll said the toddler was spared significant injuries because a palm tree below the window helped slow down the speed of the fall and the girl landed on shrubs.

Carroll said the child was being cuddled by her uncle and was crying when crews arrived.

She was then taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

No other details were immediately released.
