Girl dies after being thrown from horse in N.H.

LANCASTER, N.H. (NEWS CENTER) — A child has died as a result of injuries sustained at a horse show in Lancaster, N.H.

The girl was thrown from a horse around 4 p.m. Saturday while participating in the White Mountains Riding Club Horse Show, according to town manager and Lancaster Fair president Edward Samson.

She was transferred to Weeks Medical Center for treatment but later succumbed to her injuries.

Last August, a man and his 6-year-old daughter were killed at the same fairgrounds after a circus tent collapsed.
