GILBERT, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities have released the names of a girl who was killed and another injured in Gilbert after a backyard swing set broke apart.

Gilbert police say 7-year-old Clara Bergan was flown to a Phoenix hospital, where she was later pronounced dead after Sunday's accident.

They say 14-year-old Kayla Eherlico was transported by ambulance to a different Phoenix hospital for treatment of a shoulder injury.

Firefighters responded to the home around 9:30 a.m. Sunday and found both girls with head injuries.

Police spokesman Sgt. Jesse Sanger says the 14-year-old was on the wooden swing and the younger girl was standing nearby when it snapped at the base.

He says both were knocked into a swimming pool.

Police say neither girl lived at the home nor were they related.
