A 4-year-old girl was electrocuted and died last week after she reached for a puppy stuck behind a clothes dryer at her Oklahoma home, KXII-TV reported.
The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office said Lily Minyard came touched a bare spot on the electrical wire, giving her a massive shock last Wednesday. The girl’s mother rushed her to the town hall in Ravia for help, but the girl could not be revived. She was pronounced dead at a hospital in nearby Tishomingo, southeast of Oklahoma City.
Officials said the state medical examiner’s office has been investigating, but all indications were that the death was an accident.
