Family shares warning after 22-month-old dies in furniture tip-over incident
A 22-month-old in South Carolina has died after sustaining injuries in a dresser tip-over incident, according to the toddler's relative and a news release from the Anderson County Coroner's Office.
Ja'Laya Bryant of Calhoun Falls, South Carolina, was visiting her grandparents' house on Sunday and "apparently was trying to climb a dresser when it tumbled over and trapped her," according to the coroner's office.
Jessica Fleming, who identified herself as Ja'Laya's great-aunt, confirmed the toddler's death to "Good Morning America."
According to Fleming, investigators believe Ja'Laya had reached for bracelets on top of a dresser when the dresser fell, pinning the toddler between the dresser and the bed. She said they believe a dresser drawer also fell on the toddler's chest.
