First lady Michelle Obama helped the little girl to her feet and later gave her a big hug. Ashtyn's Navy father, John, declared her fine, The Hill noted.

The first lady was unveiling the 2013 holiday decorations, which include life-size replicas of Sunny and Bo and a 300-pound edible gingerbread White House, and had invited military families and their children to see them.
