A baby girl is fighting for her life after sustaining severe injuries in a fall from a 10 storey window in Ras Al Khaimah on Sunday.

The 19-month-old Egyptian child, L.M, had climbed onto a sofa bed near an open window at her home at around 11.15pm, as per Al Khaleej report. 

Her mother had been preparing her 6-year-old brother's backpack for school at the time. She saw the toddler climb onto the window sill and was unable to catch her in time.

The baby girl landed on the rear windscreen of a white Toyota saloon car, which helped absorb the force of the fall.

She was immediately taken to Saqr hospital and rushed to the emergency room in critical condition. The child underwent an operation in the abdomen to stop the internal bleeding.

She was transferred to Obaidullah hospital for an advanced scan then was returned to Saqr hospital to continue her treatment. 

The father said he was grocery shopping at a nearby supermarket when the tragic fall happened.

He had bought the sofa two weeks before while his mother visited them.
