State police are investigating how a 1-year-old girl's leg was broken on Friday.

Authorities were called to Uniontown Hospital after the girl's grandmother took her there for treatment, according to police.

Police said the girl's father told them he was visiting her when they decided to play on a trampoline. The father told investigators that “he was holding the child and would drop down to his buttocks and bounce on the trampoline,” according to a news release.

The father said he was unaware the child was injured when he completed his visit and left the house.
