LOWELL, Ark. (AP) — A 7-year-old girl was killed in northwest Arkansas when she was thrown from a mule and dragged.
The Benton County Sheriff's Department said the accident happened Wednesday just east of Lowell.
Officials say a passer-by saw the mule dragging the child. A deputy reached the area and family members were already administering CPR on the child.
The Benton County Daily Record reports the girl was taken to a hospital where she died of her injuries.
The sheriff's office didn't release the child's name.
