A five-year-old girl has been seriously injured after falling from a north-end Toronto apartment building balcony, officials say.

A Toronto police spokesperson told Global News emergency crews were called to building on Jane Street, south of Finch Avenue West, before 2:15 p.m. on Tuesday.

Paramedics took the child to a trauma centre in serious condition.

Police said it’s not clear how the girl fell from the balcony and how high up it was.

In an update Tuesday, police said they are not treating this as a criminal investigation and it is not considered suspicious. They also correct the girl’s age, having previously said she was six years old.
