Police in New York are investigating the death of a 1-year-old girl who fell from a second story window in Brooklyn. Police officers were called to a report of an unconscious child at about 4:30 p.m. Friday outside a building in Bensonhurst.

When they arrived, they found the child unconscious with injuries consistent with a fall. Emergency medical services responded and took the child to Lutheran Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

A police spokesman said the window did not have safety bars.
