If she hit her head or anything she shouldn't be going to sleep anytime soon after. I would keep her awake and make sure she was acting normal. If not I would take her in.

She should be seen by a doctor immediately! You just don't mess with things like that in kids! A highchair fall can cause all kinds of issues if she hit her head. Tell your friend to take her to the ER since her ped is likely closed today.

Your friend states that her daughter is fine.

Your friend is checking her daughter every 15 minutes.

Your friend is not going to take your advice.

You gave your friend your opinion. Let it alone. The girl is your friend's daughter, not yours.

I would just make sure that the child didnt fall asleep within 2 hours of the accident and then check on her every 30 mins while asleep. When she wakes up I would make sure she does not exhibit any change in her behavior. This information does not replace your own gut feelings as the mother or friend. I have just had a few incidents where my son growing up has hurt his head bad. On falling of the edge of a bed and hitting the hardwood floor head first at 6 months old. Its really just personal opinion. The next time he hurt his head bad it was bleeding a bit so I took him to the hospital turned out he needed stitches but head trauma wise he was ok with not symptoms of concusion.
