Aurora authorities have identified a 4-year-old girl who died when a television fell on her.

Officials in the west suburban community say preschooler Cyliyah Yarbrough died Sunday, shortly after she was hit by the television that fell off a stand in the 1200-block of Nantucket. An autopsy determined she died of cranial/cerebral injuries.

She was pronounced dead at Presence Mercy Medical Center in Aurora. Investigators say the girl's mother and a younger sibling were home at the time of the accident, shortly before 6 p.m. Her death is considered an accident.
