OREGON CITY, OR (KPTV) -

A 3-year-old girl is in critical condition after falling into a crawl space and hitting her head at an Oregon City home.

Fire officials said the girl's mother and her Realtor were viewing a home on Meyers Road when the fall happened around 6 p.m.

The girl and her brother were playing under the stairs near the crawl space hatch when she fell 5 to 6 feet.

Clackamas firefighters rushed to the home and said they easily accessed the crawl space. They immobilized the girl and quickly removed her from the space.

She was briefly treated at the home, then taken by LifeFlight helicopter to Doernbecher Children's Hospital.

Though she is in critical condition, officials said her condition is improving.
