5 year old girl falls three stories

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Emily Baysinger-Ramirez is lucky to be okay after falling from a third floor apartment window Wednesday afternoon.

Kennewick Police say Emily and her 8 year old cousin were playing in the bedroom of an apartment on the 7700 block of West Fourth Avenue. Police say the window was open with only the screen as a barrier. Emily was sitting in the window sill and fell about 35 feet onto the rocks below.

She is at Kennewick General Hospital so doctors can keep an eye on her. Both she and her dad say it is a miracle she didn't break any bones.

"My angel... she didn't let me hurt myself really bad," said Emily as she was resting in a hospital bed.

Her father, Nick Ramirez said, "The most important thing is that she's okay. She's healthy and by some way, she escaped the situation without a scratch really. So, I'm just thankful for her health."

Police say Emily's aunt was home at the time. The incident is still under investigation.
