EMERGENCY services rescued a five-year-old girl who was hanging from a seventh floor balcony in Alicante.
The child was alone in her home, in the Luceros de Alicante square, when she climbed over the railing and could not make her way back.
Two fire engines were quickly dispatched and placed a life net on the square before rescuing the child.
The mother returned soon after the rescue from the gym and was promptly arrested for parental negligence.
She has no previous record but the young girl has been taken to her father’s house. The couple were separated before the incident.
