CANTON, Mass.–Family members say a 6-year-old girl who was hit by a falling tree limb, has died.

Kaleigh Kenyon was pinned under the large limb Friday afternoon at her home in Canton, about 15 miles south of Boston. Police say she had been freed by the time they arrived on the scene, and a neighbor was performing CPR.

The young girl was taken to a hospital, where family members say she later died.

Kaleigh’s cousins set up a GoFundMe page to help the family cover expenses, which you can find here.

Meanwhile, Canton Police are urging residents, and especially children, to stay indoors because of the danger from falling trees and tree limbs.
