Five-year-old girl in horror accident
A 5-YEAR-OLD girl has been taken to hospital after what looks to be an accidental hanging in a Sydney backyard this afternoon.
A NSW Ambulance spokesman said a call was received about 4.30pm today and four crews were sent to Penfold St, Eastern Creek.
"When we arrived we treated a five-year-old girl found hanging in the backyard for a short period," he said.
It's believed family members gave the girl CPR before paramedics arrived and the spokesman said she was conscious when they got there.
"We took the 5-year-old to Westmead Children's Hospital in a serious condition."
NSW Police said officers were in attendance and the circumstances were still being investigated.
