An 18-month-old girl was injured after falling from a fourth-floor window of a Framingham apartment building this afternoon.
Police and firefighters were called to the Jefferson Village Apartments on Worcester Street at about 4:30 p.m., said Lt. Paul Shastany, a police spokesman.
Shastany said that the girl was apparently on a windowsill in her family's apartment when the window screen gave way.
The girl dropped 36 feet and landed on the concrete sidewalk in front of her building, injuring her head and face.
She was conscious and crying when police arrived on the scene, Shastany said. The toddler was airlifted to UMASS Memorial Hospital in Worcester. Her condition wasn't available.
