TROY, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a 3-year-old Troy girl has died from injuries suffered when a television fell on her.
Police in Troy tell local media outlets that emergency crews were called to a home in the city around 7:30 p.m. Thursday after an older model TV fell off its stand and landed on the girl.
She was taken to Albany Medical Center Hospital, where she was pronounced dead soon after arrival.
