The Kane County Coroner's Office has determined that the Sunday death of a 4-year-old girl was caused by a falling television.

According to a press release issued Monday, coroner's deputies were called to Presence Mercy Medical Center at around 6:43 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26 in regard to an emergency room death. The deputies were informed that the decedent was a 4-year-old female who had suffered injuries due to the family television falling on her.

"The preliminary cause of death was determined to be cranial-cerebral injuries due to a falling television," the press release said.
