A 2-year-old girl who fell from the second-story window of a Brentwood home on Tuesday night was airlifted to a hospital with serious injuries, Contra Costa County Fire Protection District spokeswoman Emily Hopkins said.

Emergency responders arrived at the home in the 2200 block of Sand Creek Road after the girl's family called 911 at about 8:40 p.m.

Paramedics quickly called for a medical helicopter, which landed on a nearby soccer field, Hopkins said. The girl was taken to Children's Hospital in Oakland.
