KANSAS CITY - An 8-month-old Kansas City girl has died a day after a television set fell on her.
Emergency crews were called at 11:10 a.m. Tuesday in response to the accident and took the baby to a hospital in critical condition. A police spokesman issued a news release Wednesday morning saying the girl later died.
Neighbors say they are saddened by the news of the infant's death, and that it should serve as a reminder to other parents to keep a close eye on their children.
