ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers say a 3-year-old western Alaska girl has died after a boat fell on top of her.

KTUU reports (https://is.gd/bM6onl) the accident happened Saturday on dry land, in the community of Lower Kalskag.

Troopers say the girl, Gwendolyn Nayamin, had been playing on the 16-foot boat, which had been leaning against a home.

The boat toppled when she was playing on it. No foul play is suspected, and troopers have called it an accidental death. The girl’s body will be sent to Anchorage for an autopsy.

Lower Kalskag, a community of about 280 people, is located about 90 miles northeast of Bethel.
