The girl, whose name was not released, was at UC Irvine Medical Center, said Anthony Bertagna, a spokesman for the Santa Ana Police Department.

The girl and her mother were visiting a friend Monday afternoon in a second-floor apartment on the 800 block of South Sullivan Street.

The girl and the friend’s 3-year-old child were playing in the living room while the mothers cooked dinner.

Eventually, the children made their way to a bedroom, which contained a bed next to an open window, Bertagna said.

While bouncing on the bed, the girl was sent through the window screen and fell head-first to the ground, he said.

She was expected to survive her injuries, Bertagna said.
