A Texas toddler had passed away this week after sustaining a fatal brain injury during a family birthday party.
On July 11, Delilah Hunt was struck to the head when “a part of a Chevy pickup flew off the engine tank” while she attended a nearby family party.
She was airlifted to a Dallas hospital where she died two days later, her grieving dad wrote on a GoFundMe Page initially for Dalilah’s medical fees.
“By the end of the day my lil girl will be with her grandpa and great-grandma watching down on us,” he wrote on July 14.
“She has her wings now. We are planning a celebration of her life.”
“We are so heartbroken and sad. Thank you to anyone who helps; it means the world.”
Through tears, the late toddler’s aunt told a local news outlet that she was hit by a pickup truck AC compressor plate.
“I’m hurt, not mad at anybody for it because it was a freak accident. We’re all in shock.”
First responder Tim Bilderback described the tragic death as a “random freak accident.”
“If she was anywhere besides the spot she was sitting in, the injury would not have been as bad.
Nobody expects that to happen.”
