A six-year-old Utah girl was killed in a freak golf accident on Monday when she was struck in the neck by a ball hit by her father.
The little girl, named Aria Hill, was sitting in a golf cart watching her father play when he hit a ball that struck her in the back of the neck. The girl was airlifted to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. Investigators are calling it a tragic accident and don’t intend to file any charges. (NBC News)
- The golf cart she was sitting in was believed to be a safe distance away from her father.
- The girl often accompanied her father to the golf course.
- The father is considered to be an expert golfer.
- Something doesn’t seem right. He’s an expert golfer and the girl was not in front of him, so how did he end up hitting a shot in her direction?
