EL MONTE, Calif. – A 6-year-old girl was killed after she pulled a television set off a dresser on to herself.
El Monte police Detective David Smith says the girl was in a room with a sleeping adult Sunday morning when she either tried to turn on the television or pull something off the dresser, bringing the 32-inch TV down on top of her.
Smith says the family called 911, and the girl was taken to a hospital in Arcadia where she was declared dead soon after.
Smith says foul play is not suspected and calls the incident "an unfortunate tragedy."
The Los Angeles County Coroner is determining the official cause of death.
Authorities did not release the girl's name.
