Jenna Holland put her 2-year old daughter down for a nap on her bed and went in another room.
At some point, 2-year-old Mary Molina woke up and began playing with the vertical blinds near the bed and her neck became entangled in the loop-style cord, the Broward Sheriff's Office said Thursday.
BSO on Thursday released new details about the toddler's tragic death in her home at 4501 NE 15th Way the day before.
Holland returned to check on her daughter at about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday and found the little girl wasn't breathing. She tried to give the baby CPR, BSO said.
Never miss a local story.
BSO deputies tried to revive her. She was taken to Holy Cross Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Rena Molina, the child’s father, was not home during the incident but came home to find rescuers working on his daughter.
