A 2-year-old north Texas girl is dead after a television set fell on her.

The incident happened about 9:30 p.m. Saturday at the girl's family's home in the small town of Cresson, about 20 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds said that the child's parents were connecting a DVD player to the set about 9:30 p.m. Saturday when the set fell on their daughter.

The identities of the child and her parents haven't been released.

No charges have been filed, but Deeds says the Hood County District Attorney's Office and Child Protective Services have been notified.
