September 25, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A 2-year-old Harford County girl was listed in stable condition last night after falling 20 feet from the balcony of her townhouse onto some concrete, said state police.

Cpl. Daniel Fairburn said the child, whose name was not released, climbed onto a bicycle kept near the railing of a balcony at her home in the 1700 block of Fountain Rock Way in Edgewood. The girl's mother rushed to prevent her from falling, but the girl fell and landed on her head about 3:20 p.m. before the mother could reached her, he said.

Fairburn said the child was flown by state police helicopter to Johns Hopkins Children's Center's pediatric intensive care unit, where she was treated for head and facial injuries.
