Authorities say a 9-month-old girl died after falling from a fifth-floor balcony at a riverfront hotel in Savannah, where the child's family was vacationing over the Memorial Day weekend.

The parents told police their baby girl squirmed out of her mother's arms and plunged from an atrium balcony to the lobby floor inside the Hyatt Regency hotel in Savannah's downtown historic district.

Police said the child was rushed to a local hospital with critical injuries. She died Sunday, two days after she fell.

Savannah-Chatham County police spokesman Julian Miller said Tuesday afternoon that no criminal charges had been filed, but detectives were still investigating.

Miller said the baby's parents were visiting Savannah for the holiday weekend.
