Neck/back injury: Your daughter needs to be examined at a hospital - based emergency department immediately as she may sustained a potentially serious injury to her neck and/ or upper back. If it is impossible for her to move on her own, she should remain still and you should request 911 ambulance transport to a hospital. Please do not delay.

Fracture: Have her assessed and XR the affected area. Falling out of a tree is a big fall for a little girl. All the best.
