ALIQUIPPA, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in Pennsylvania say a second little girl has died after a dresser toppled onto her and her sister.

Beaver County Coroner Teri Tatolovich Rossi says 3-year-old Ryeley Beatty died Sunday at Children’s Hospital in Lawrenceville. She was taken there Friday after the dresser fell on her and her 2-year-old sister, Brooklyn, at their home in Aliquippa.

Rossi tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the girls appeared to have been playing in or around the bottom drawer of the dresser, causing it to fall onto them.

Brooklyn was pronounced dead Friday at Heritage Valley Beaver hospital in Brighton. She died of asphyxiation due to compression of her chest.

An autopsy on Ryeley is planned.
