child died from injuries she suffered after a TV fell on her at

Family members told Houston Police Department
Homicide Sergeant R. Oliva and Officer B. Nabors that Lizzete
Pena was in the living room with her mother, great-grandmother
and other relatives watching TV. Lizzete threw a small toy that
landed on top of the television. When she stepped on a shelf of
the TV stand to retrieve it, the stand tipped over and the television
landed on top of her.
Family members rushed to lift the TV off of Lizzete
who was unconscious and unresponsive. HFD paramedics arrived and
transported the child to Memorial Hermann Hospital where she later
died from head trauma.
