A Manatee County girl who was critically injured when a swing set fell on her has died.
WFLA reports that 8-year-old Lexi Antorino has lived in a semi-coma since the accident happened in 2007. She died Monday.
The Palmetto girl was only 2 when the swing set came crashing down on her.
The community has rallied around the family over the years. Her family had no health insurance.
Lexi was playing on a swing set at a neighborhood civic association when it collapsed. The top bar landed on the girl crushing her head and neck. A neighbor used CPR to revive her but the trauma and blood loss left Lexi struggling to breathe and unable to communicate.
