4-year-old girl recovering after falling from back of bus in Arkansas

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 4-year-old girl is expected to be released from the hospital today after falling out of the back of a moving bus. 

It happened last Wednesday. Ryan Ciampoli, a volunteer firefighter was driving behind the bus in Harrison, Arkansas, when the back door flung open and a little girl fell to the pavement while the bus continued on.

Ciampoli rushed to help her.

"She was unconscious at first," Ciampoli said. "But then she started to move her arm and kind of look up at me, and so I picked her up as carefully as I could and held her in my arms and kind of assessed her little body to see what kind of damage had been done from the fall."

The little girl was hospitalized with a broken jaw which required surgery, but she is expected to make a full recovery.
