Coroner: Gaffney girl killed in daycare accident

May 12, 2011 8:51:00 AM - thestate.com
Authorities say a 3-year-old Gaffney girl has died after a portable stage fell on her at a church daycare facility.

Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler says Alyssa Jade Mayfield was in the gym at West End Baptist Church around 3:20 p.m. Wednesday when a folded portable stage fell on her.

Daycare workers performed CPR on the girl, who Fowler says the girl was flown to a Spartanburg hospital and pronounced dead about an hour later.

Fowler says Alyssa probably bumped into a cart holding the 4-foot by 8-foot stage piece. An autopsy has been ordered.
