A YOUNG girl had a lucky escape after falling from the eighth floor of an apartment in Alicante.
The four-year-old was at her grandparents’ house in the centre of the city, opposite the Hotel Gran Sol, when she fell from the balcony.
Fortunately, she only fell one floor, landing on the terrace of a property below. No one was in the apartment at the time so firefighters rescued the youngster from the terrace.
She was scared and not injured but was taken to hospital for a full check up.
