A little girl is recovering after falling several stories from a Bronx apartment building early Monday morning.
The incident happened at around 3:30 a.m. at a building on Andrews Avenue near West 183rd Street, police said.
The 7-year-old girl, who is autistic, had climbed out of a window onto the fourth-floor fire escape, a law enforcement official said.
Police believe that although the girl got onto the fire escape on the fourth floor, she may have fallen from a lower level, according to the NYPD.
She was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center in stable condition for treatment of minor injuries, police said.
No criminality is suspected in the incident, according to police.
