Brookline Police: 5-Year-Old Girl Dies After Falling From 4th-Floor Window

Brookline police say a 5-year-old girl has died after falling more than 30 feet from the fourth-floor window of an apartment building and landing on concrete below.

Officers said the girl had been playing with friends in the suburban Boston apartment when she fell Monday afternoon.

The girl was taken to Children's Hospital in Boston with critical injuries.

Police said late Monday that she was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Lt. Philip Harrington says there's no indication of foul play.
