A five-year-old Colorado girl died following a backyard accident involving a swing set, authorities said.

Aurora Masters was playing outside her home in Fort Collins last week when she became entangled in the swing, her great aunt told Fox affiliate KDVR-TV.

“She pulled her little plastic slide over to where her swing was and somehow got caught up in the swing, and the swing strangled her,” Brenda Kennedy said.

Officers with the City of Fort Collins Police Department arrived on the scene and rendered aid before EMS arrived, and the girl was transported to Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora, USA Today and KDVR reported.

Police said she received treatment until she died on May 11.

Once that is complete, extra funds will be donated to agencies and/or organizations that help Aurora's memory continue.”
