She says residents in the apartment complex in northwest Toronto reacted quickly to help the child along with prompt response from paramedics and officers.

Sidhu says the girl’s mom was briefly tending to her infant when the five-year-old vanished.

She says the mother looked everywhere then looked over the balcony’s edge, only to see her daughter lying on the ground.
