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.

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