(HERINGTON, Kan.) — Herington police have identified a two-year-old killed by a falling TV and dresser as Ariana Bergstrom.

Our news partners at The Salina Journal says the child's mother found her just after noon on Monday. The Herington police chief tells the Journal that investigators believe Bergstrom climbed onto a stool to reach a large television on top of a dresser, and the dresser tipped over.

Investigators say the child fell, and a dresser drawer and TV followed, hitting her in the head. While investigators are waiting on an official cause of death from the Dickinson County coroner, the police chief says initial indications are it is a "tragic home accident".
