LEXINGTON, KY (WAVE) – The grandfather of a 3-year-old Lexington girl who suffocated said she was found inside a bean bag in her room.

The family believes Kylee Simmerman may have climbed into the bag during a game of Hide 'n' Seek. The girl's father searched their home Wednesday and could not find her, so he called emergency crews.

Firefighters who responded found her unresponsive in the bean bag and took her to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The Fayette County Cornorer's office said there were no outward signs of trauma in Kylee's death.

Kylee's visitation was held on Friday from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the Bosley Funeral Home in Lebanon. Her funeral is Saturday at 11 a.m. at the St. Augustine Catholic Church in Lebanon.
