WHITMAN (CBS) – The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office and the Department of Children and Families are investigating the death of a 2-year-old girl in Whitman.

Police officers and EMS responded to a 911 call at an apartment on Washington Street early Saturday morning.

According to WBZ-TV I-Team sources, the child was found unconscious with several injuries, including a head wound. She was rushed to Brockton Hospital and then taken by helicopter to Boston Children’s Hospital.

The toddler, identified by her family as Lyric Farrell, was declared brain dead Monday and she was taken off life support Tuesday.

A neighbor told WBZ they heard the mother crying and a lot of commotion.

“It’s just shocking because you don’t think that it’s going to be like right under your nose, like right in your neighborhood,” neighbor Elaine Christie said.

No other information is available at this point in the investigation.
