COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — Council Bluffs police say a 3-year-old girl was hospitalized after she fell out of a window while watching fireworks.

Investigators say Aliyah Polascik fell 9 feet out of a window on Sunday night. Police said she was apparently watching fireworks on the street from a porch window. The girl was standing on the sofa with her hands on the screen when it gave way.
