A 3-year-old girl was killed today in what police are calling a freak accident at a Philadelphia ice cream shop.

According to police, a 3-year-old girl who was with her mother at a Rita's Water Ice in the Brewerytown section became trapped when a metal security door broke loose and fell on her.

According to ABC station WPVI-TV in Philadelphia, other people on the scene lifted the heavy door off the girl and performed CPR. She was taken to Hahnemann Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
