Incident at 134 Woolworth

July 13, 2006 -- A 3-year-old child died from injuries she suffered after a TV fell on her at 134 Woolworth on Wednesday, July 12, 2006 at about 4:30 p.m.

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.
