January 23, 2019

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Police say a 5-year-old girl was knocked unconscious after falling over a second-floor railing inside a Sioux Falls hotel.

Authorities say the girl, from Mitchell, was playing with a ball with other children in the hallway of the Ramada Inn Sunday when the ball went over the railing. Police spokesman Sam Clemens says that as the children were running after it, the girl was unable to slow down, flipped over the railing and fell to the first floor.

She was taken to the hospital, but Clemens says she was not seriously hurt.
