PEARL RIVER COUNTY, Miss. (AP) — A child was killed in Pearl River County over the weekend after a tree reportedly fell on a house during an overnight storm, according to authorities.

The tree crashed into the sleeping girl’s bedroom at around 3 a.m. Saturday, according to local media reports. It happened during severe storms that moved through the area overnight.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help the family of Raegan Mae Lee, who would have turned two later this year.
