A 4-year-old girl sustained only minor injuries after she fell from the balcony of her 9th floor apartment in Usa, Oita Prefecture.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 10 a.m. on Sunday. TBS reported that the girl had been on the balcony when she stood on a chair and climbed atop the one-meter railing.
She fell 22.5 meters and hit some hedges that ran alongside the apartment building.
Her mother told police that she had been doing laundry at the time of the accident and had not noticed her daughter on the balcony.
The girl's legs were injured in the fall, but she was otherwise physically uninjured.© Japan Today
