DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Des Moines police say a 4-year-old girl who died after falling from a third-story window was likely pushing or leaning on a screen that gave way.

Police say the screened window was open in the third-story playroom Sunday night when Hannah Geneser fell.

Hannah died early Monday at a Des Moines hospital. The Polk County medical examiner says the child died from severe head trauma. Police say no foul play is suspected, calling it a very tragic accident.

Hannah was at the home of her aunt and uncle for her cousin's birthday party. Her home was only a few blocks away.
