A 2-year-old Highland Park girl was killed when a trundle bed collapsed on her Tuesday night.

The child's mother was at work and she was under the care of her 19-year-old babysitter in the 5200 block of Glen Ellen Place when she disappeared, NBC LA reports. The babysitter and neighbors searched for the girl, eventually finding her unconscious beneath the lower half of the bed, which had been raised and collapsed after she crawled under it, at about 7 p.m.

The girl was taken to a nearby hospital where she was later pronounced dead. The death has been ruled an accident, and no one was arrested.
