Tombstone Crushes Girl In Cemetery

A 9-year-old girl playing in a graveyard was killed when an old tombstone fell on her.

Dawn R. Brammer of Cardington was crushed Sunday by a 5-1/2-foot obelisk she was climbing. It was knocked over domino-style when a tombstone her 10-year-old cousin was climbing on toppled.

Many of the stones in the Otterbein Cemetery are almost 100 years old.
