OAKLAND PARK, Fla. — Broward County hospital officials say a 5-year-old girl who fell from a 7th-story window has been upgraded to stable condition.

The girl was taken to Broward Health Medical Center in critical condition Friday night after falling from her bedroom window in an Oakland Park apartment.

Hospital officials tell WTVJ-TV in Miami that the girl's condition improved Sunday.

The Broward Sheriff's Office says Seaniecea Fleming was found walking along the windowsill in the bedroom. Authorities say that when she tried to reach the nearby bunk beds, she fell through the screen and open window and plunged to the grass below.

Bystanders took the girl and her mother to a hospital. At the time, authorities said the girl suffered multiple traumatic injuries.
