A four-year-old girl is in critical condition after falling from a fourth-floor window in Mississauga on Wednesday.

Peel police say the incident, which happened at 480 Lakeshore Rd. E. near Cawthra, appears to be an accident, but wouldn’t release details.

However, a friend of the girl told CityNews she was leaning against the window while talking to another friend below when the mesh gave way.

“I know that her friend called her from the window and she put her head out and she was talking to her friend, and she fell. That’s what I heard from her friend,” said Amylia Kaerimov.

The mesh screen on the window could be seen detached and blowing in the wind.

The girl was treated at Trillium Health Centre and then transported to the Hospital for Sick Children.
