Rescue workers from the South Shore Fire Department were called to a residence in the 2600 block of Wisconsin Street at 7:45 p.m. for a report of a girl who had fallen in a recreational fire pit. Her parents pulled her out of the fire immediately and were administering first aid to the child.

The girl was taken by a Flight for Life helicopter to Children’s Hospital. Sturtevant Police believe the injury was accidental, but the investigation continues.
