BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Police say a toddler has survived a four-story fall from an apartment building in Burlington.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/2cIaIZd ) that police are investigating what led to the fall, which they are classifying as an accident.

Police say the 2-year-old was playing in a room at the Waterfront Housing complex on Lake Street Wednesday afternoon when she went through a window screen and fell 40 feet.

Authorities say she landed on grass and appeared to have only suffered a broken leg.

The girl’s mother and a friend were in the apartment when she fell.
