    A Frisco father says his daughter is “serious but alive” after a four story fall Friday morning.

    Frisco fire said dispatchers were called just before 9 a.m. to an apartment in the 6200 block of Frisco Square Boulevard.

    Firefighters said it appears a window was left open and a 2-year-old girl pushed the window screen out and feel four stories to a grassy area below.

    “They had her neck and head braced up,” said witness Ron Franz. “They had her on a stretcher. She could not move, but her eyes were open.”

    Franz said he saw a small toy lying on the grass next to the child. He describes it as a stuffed Easter bunny.

    “I don’t know if she fell out of the window and it came with her, or it fell out and she went with it. Who knows?” he said. “It was just heartbreaking that at this time of Easter, Good Friday, to see a little one, or anybody, hurt like that.”

    The toddler was taken by ambulance to Frisco Fire Station No. 4 where CareFlite airlifted her to Dallas.

    Late Friday, Frisco police and fire determined the fall was simply an accident.

    Assistant Chief Shaw Eft told NBC 5 falling on the grassy area as opposed to the nearby concrete may have lessened the girl’s injuries.

    The family is choosing to keep their daughter’s name private, but may choose to update the media if her condition changes.
