DALLAS (AP) — A 2-year-old girl attending the circus in Dallas has been hurt in an accidental fall from the second level of the American Airlines Center to the main level.

Dallas Fire-Rescue personnel attended to the child Wednesday night, who was transported to a hospital. Her name and further details on her condition weren’t immediately available Thursday.

Arena general manager David Brown released a statement Thursday saying the girl was injured during the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Brown says the family was leaving their seats on the front row of the 200 level just before intermission when the child fell to the Plaza Level below.

Officials did not estimate the distance the child fell.

Dallas Fire-Rescue officials did not immediately provide additional information Thursday.
