The girl’s mother told CBS New York that her daughter, identified as Audrianna Dzyuba, often sat on the window sill in their sixth-floor apartment in the Bronx, but that the window was always shut and locked.

However, on Friday evening, a teenage cousin opened the window and briefly left the room, according to CBS.

The girl apparently climbed up on the sill and tumbled out the open window, landing on a metal awning below.

A woman in a second-floor apartment was able to grab the girl off the awning.

The toddler was taken for medical treatment, but was pronounced just fine.
