WATERLOO (KWWL) - The six-year-old injured in a fall out of a Waterloo two-story window was in stable condition as of Wednesday morning, according to officials.

That is an upgrade from her previous condition, said Capt. Dave Mohlis with the Waterloo Police Department.

Mohlis added that the Department of Human Services was involved in the investigation.

ORIGINAL STORY:

A fall out of a two-story window severely injured a 6-year-old girl Tuesday night. 

The injury occurred in a house at 1321 West 5th Street in Waterloo, shortly before 7 p.m.
It's still unclear exactly what happened, but the young victim -- a 6-year-old girl -- fell out of a second-story window on the north side of the house. 

An older brother reportedly found his little sister on the ground, outside the house. She was bleeding from the fall. 

Waterloo Police and Waterloo Fire/Rescue were quickly on the scene. Waterloo Fire/Rescue transported the child to Unity Point-Allen Hospital.

She was later transferred to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinic in Iowa City, according to Waterloo Police, through a neighbor whom police interviewed. 

Neither the name nor condition of the injured child has been released, but a police investigation is underway.
