DALLAS, Texas -

A two-year-old Dallas girl has avoided serious injury after falling through a window from the second floor of an apartment.
    
Authorities say the toddler's mother heard a thud, looked from the window and saw the child outside on the ground.
    
The child's grandmother, Rhonda Thomas tells Dallas television station WFAA emergency medical help was summoned and the child was taken to a hospital where she appeared to be fine except for a swollen eye. Police say a cut to her eye required four stitches.
    
The family says the fall Friday evening was an accident but officials from Child Protective Services are investigating.
