PHOENIX - Gilbert police say a 2-year-old girl is expected to recover after she fell from a second-story window Sunday.

Police spokesman Lt. Eric Shuhandler says the girl's mother was cleaning and had the window open when she turned away for just a few moments, but long enough for the child to fall out of the home and onto a patio.

Rescue workers were called to the scene.

A Gilbert Fire Department captain says the child has head and chest trauma, but was conscious when she was flown to Phoenix Children's Hospital.

Police believe the fall was an accident and are not pursuing criminal charges.
