KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Sometimes love hurts, but rarely does it get this painful. A case-worker visiting an apartment in the 900 block of Rose St. knocked on the door and was greeted by a 5-year-old girl, who was apparently so excited to see the woman, that the child jumped up for a hug.

The woman lost her balance, tumbled backwards down a flight of stairs, both of them crashing thru a window and onto the pavement 15-feet below according to Public Safety.

Both suffered head injuries but were awake and alert when EMT’s took them to Emergency for treatment late Tuesday morning.

Their names and conditions have not been released but both are expected to recover.
