She was treated in intensive care before moving to a regular ward at Tome ambulance Hospital.
According to Russian media: “The child spent one night in an intensive care ward.
“Doctors managed to stabilise the little patient’s condition.”
The horror fall was captured on CCTV with incredible footage showing the moment the girl falls to the ground.
Video shows the girl soaring through the air from her balcony before hitting the snow with tremendous impact.
She lays in the huge pile of snow for a while as she appears to try and stand up.
She then stumbles to her feet and manages to climb over a small fence while clutching her sides.
Appearing to be in pain, the girl then proceeds to run to her apartment block in the building she fell from.
Local media reports a concerned neighbour called emergency services after seeing the great fall.
It has emerged that she was left alone by her mother when the near fatal drop happened.
