A child was taken to Children's Hospital after injuring her hand at the L'Enfant Plaza Metro Station, according to D.C. Fire and EMS.

A 4-year-old girl was with her mother when she fell on an escalator at about noon Thursday, according to Metro. She got her fingers stuck in the escalator and suffered significant injuries to her hand, D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Pete Piringer said. The girl is alert and breathing, the Associated Press reported.

The station's Seventh Street and Maryland Avenue exit was closed for Metro to inspect it and review the incident, Metro spokeswoman Cathy Asato said.
