ANCHORAGE, Alaska -

Alaska State Troopers say a 2-year-old North Pole girl playing in her family home’s garage has died after an accident in which a piece of equipment fell on her Thursday night.

According to a Friday AST dispatch, North Pole Fire Department crews responded at about 9 p.m. Thursday to the Cassier Street home of Dehlia Shakoske, who was in the garage as her father, 33-year-old James Shakoske, was working nearby.

“Dehlia climbed or pulled on the handle of a 22 gallon air compressor, which caused the air compressor to topple over,” troopers wrote. “The air compressor, which weighed approximately 75 lbs, fell on Dehlia's chest.”

Medics took Dehlia Shakoske, who entered respiratory distress and was intermittently losing consciousness, to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital. She later died there at about 2 a.m. Friday, with her parents present.

The state medical examiner’s office has requested Shakoske’s body for an autopsy, and troopers visited the home to conduct an investigation and interviews. According to AST, there are no apparent signs of foul play in her death.
