Baby girl dies after fall from third-floor apartment window in San Diego County


CHULA VISTA, California — Police say an 11-month-old girl was killed in an accidental fall from a third-floor apartment window in San Diego County.

Lt. Fritz Reber said Tuesday that the girl's father was with her on a bed that was against a wall near the window and he was briefly distracted. When he turned around, the girl was gone.

Reber says the window screen was torn in the middle, but it wasn't clear how it was ripped.

Chula Vista officers responding Monday evening performed CPR on the child, who was unresponsive. She was flown to Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, where she died.

Police tell U-T San Diego ( that both parents were home at the time of the accident.

Detectives from the Family Protection Unit are investigating.
