A Thibodaux girl has died two weeks after being hit in the head by a golf ball while playing outside her home.

Claire Gauthreaux says her granddaughter, 7-year-old Casey Gauthreaux, was in the yard at the family's home in Thibodaux when the accident occurred.

The ball was hit by Casey's older brother, 14-year-old Andrew, an avid golfer.

The Oct. 12 injury was unintentional.

Casey died Sunday. Her funeral was Wednesday.
