LEWISVILLE, Texas (AP) - A 2-year-old girl is dead after an unhinged door toppled onto her at her family’s suburban Dallas home.

The incident happened early Thursday afternoon at her family’s Lewisville home. Police Capt. Dan Rochelle says the door was removed from its hinges so a heavy appliance could be moved into the house. He says at some point the door fell on the girl, fatally crushing her.

Rochelle says the detectives are investigating, but the death appears to have been accidental.
