Lexington Girl Died From Accidental Hanging

New information in the death of a 10-year-old Lexington girl.

The coroner now says Ivy Freeman died from asphyxiation due to hanging.

Police are investigating the death as an accident.

Freeman died Wednesday at the UK hospital, two days after she was found unconscious in the family's backyard on Summerfield drive.

It's believed the accident involved a swing or rope on her play set.

Freeman was a fifth grader at Meadowthorpe Elementary. Grief counselors will be on hand when students return from fall break on Monday.

    To the friends and family of Ivy Freeman, know that my heart goes out to you. Some things we will never understand this side of heaven. My prayer is that you will be comforted by God Himself and all of those who loved Ivy.
