PALMDALE -- A 3-year-old boy has died after being struck in the head by a garage door that malfunctioned at his
Palmdale home.

The accident happened in the 38500 block of 22nd Street East, near Palmdale Boulevard, just after 6:15 p.m.
Tuesday, according to a lieutenant at the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department's Palmdale Station.

The victim's mother opened the motorized sectional garage door, preparing to leave with her two sons.  

When she attempted to close the garage door, "something malfunctioned, and the door hit the 3-year-old in the
head," the lieutenant said.

Angel Nougeda died at Antelope Valley Hospital, said Assistant Chief Ed Winter of the
coroner's office.

Homicide detectives determined that the death was a result of an accident, the lieutenant said.

Video from the scene showed the door suddenly slam shut when detectives performed a test.
INDIANAPOLIS  —  Police say a 13-year-old Indianapolis boy died when a board used to prop open a garage door gave
way and the door came down on his neck.

A police spokesman said Terry Lee Barnett was tinkering with an electric car when the two-by-four dislodged about      
11  a.m. Thursday and he became pinned under the door.

Sgt. Paul Thompson says Barnett was trapped for as long as 15 minutes before a relative found him on the floor of the
family's garage on the city's west side.

Barnett was taken to Riley Hospital for Children and pronounced dead a short time later.

Thompson says the door had no spring mechanism and relatives told investigators it was prone to falling.
