GILBERT, Ariz. — A freak swing set accident killed a 7-year-old girl and injured her 14-year-old friend Sunday near a backyard swimming pool, KPHO reported.
The wooden swing set collapsed while the two girls were swinging on a rope. The swing set was made to allow people to jump off the rope and into the pool.
Part of the swing set fell on the 7-year-old, knocking her and her friend into the water.
Adults inside the home ran outside and pulled the 7-year-old from the water. One adult started CPR but it was too late. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The teenager was in critical condition.
