A Manatee County girl who was critically injured in 2007 when a swing set fell on her has died.
Lexi Antorino has lived in a semi-coma since the accident happened. She died Monday at age 8.
The Palmetto girl was only 2 when the swing set came crashing down on her.
The community has rallied around the family over the years. Her family had no health insurance.
Lexi was playing on a swing set at a neighborhood civic association when it collapsed. The top bar landed on the girl, crushing her head and neck. A neighbor used CPR to revive her but the trauma and blood loss left Lexi struggling to breathe and unable to communicate.
Her death was reported by WFLA-TV.
