Ms Wormald added: ‘We looked out the back window into the car park and couldn’t see anything, so I went into the back alley to have a look and as I went out I could hear a baby screaming.

‘It sounded like something was coming from next door, so I shouted over.

‘At that point I saw [a man] in the second floor window on the phone. I went out the front.

‘We could hear the sirens on the ambulance and I stood on the street with a few other people flagging it down.

‘The baby was on the full body stretcher in a neck brace and she had a mask over her face.’

A source at the scene said the little girl suffered a fractured skull and chest injuries and was taken to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool

A Lancashire Police spokesman confirmed a toddler had fallen from the hotel and was in a ‘serious condition’ with multiple broken bones.
