6 yr. old PTC girl dies after pellet rifle accident

A six year-old Peachtree City girl passed away Jan. 20 after receiving an injury to her throat by a pellet from a discharged pellet rifle.

Peachtree City Police spokesperson Rosanna Dove said city police officers and firefighters at approximately 12:26 p.m. responded to a residence on Teal Vista in the Planterra Ridge subdivision in reference a 6 year-old girl who had received an injury to her throat by a pellet that had been discharged from a pellet rifle. 

“Upon arrival, the child was unconscious and in very critical condition as a result of this wound,” Dove said. 

Dove said fire department personnel transported the girl to Piedmont Fayette Hospital where the child passed away as a result of the injury. 

“Our thoughts and condolences go out to the family as they cope with unfortunate accident. No further information will be released out of respect for the family,” Dove said.
