Aliquippa girl, 2, dies, sister hurt after dresser falls

Friday, July 4, 2014, 2:39 p.m.
 

A 2-year-old Aliquippa girl died after a dresser fell on her on Friday, the Beaver County coroner said.

Brooklyn Beatty was pronounced dead at Heritage Valley Beaver hospital in Brighton, said Coroner Teri Tatalovich-Rossi, who received the call at 12:55 p.m.

The girl's sister, 3, who was injured in the incident at their home, was transported to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC in Lawrenceville, Tatalovich-Rossi said.

The emergency call came in 11:25 a.m., said Capt. Dave Childs of the Aliquippa Fire Bureau.

“We responded because they were reported not to be breathing and we arrived on scene and found that to be the case,” he said.

He and other emergency responders performed CPR on the girls, he said.
