Chicago girl, 3, killed by falling TV

CHICAGO (AP) – A 3-year-old Chicago girl has been killed by a falling TV.

The Cook County medical examiner's office says Shaniya Singleton died at a Chicago hospital Tuesday evening after the television fell on her head while she was playing with her brother. Chicago police and investigators from the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services are looking into her death.

Singleton is the second child killed by a falling TV in the past 10 days.

On Oct. 30, 6-year-old Karl Clermont died when a TV fell on his head at his home in Arlington Heights. The boy was alone when the TV fell and police believe he may have tried to climb onto the set, causing it to fall.
