She was found by her 7-year-old brother, who alerted the children's mother. The mother then tried to revive the child after calling 911.
"Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there's a cord that hangs under the console - it's kind of a loop," police Sgt. Andy Hill said. "Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and she was obviously unable to get herself off of it."
