3-year-old Harlem girl dies in sofa accident: Report
Police are investigating the death of a 3-year-old Harlem girl who was trapped inside a sofa bed Sunday evening.
Aissante Diallo, of West 140th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard, was pronounced dead after police found her unconscious about 6 p.m.
Diallo was on the sofa bed with her 10-year-old sister while their 5-year-old sister played in the same room. Somehow, the 5-year-old caused the sofa to fold up with Diallo still on the bed, an NYPD spokeswoman said.
The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
