DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. (AP) - Police in suburban Detroit say a 3-year-old girl has died after being struck during recess by a table that folded into a gymnasium wall at a Head Start school.

Dearborn Heights police say the table fell Friday morning from the wall and on top of the girl. She was pronounced dead after being rushed to a hospital.

Other children were in the gymnasium at St. Albert the Great Parish.

Police say the incident “is being investigated as a tragic accident, related to equipment located at the facility.”

The child’s name was not immediately released and it wasn’t immediately clear who operates the Head Start school.
