VALLEY CENTER (CNS) - A 5-year-old girl fell through a skylight and struck a table about 25 feet below Sunday in Valley Center, then was airlifted to a hospital with cuts to her face, according to Cal Fire.
The girl had crawled from a hill onto the roof of a detached shed or some other type of outbuilding in the 15600 block of Via Salvador, near Mac Tan Road, about 10 a.m., said Battalion Chief Nick Schuler of Cal Fire.
She fell through the skylight and struck a metal table inside the structure, Schuler said.
The girl sustained cuts to her face and was flown to Rady Children's Hospital in "trauma status," Schuler said.
