Nine year old dies from accident in backyard

We are sad to report that a nine year old girl has died from injuries sustained by a tree branch.

Jamie Lynn Arnold died at Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh after being hit by that branch while playing in a backyard.  She was injured on September 2nd while playing in the 2600 block of Caughey Road in the yard.

Emergency crews say the branch had a swing attached to it.  On the day of the accident, Jamie was flown from UPMC Hamot to Children's Hospital for treatment.

She died this past Monday.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and those who knew her.
