The sheriff's office said the 911 call came in just before 3 p.m. Deputies and other agencies responded to the town of Eden home, including ThedaStar, which flew the 9-year-old to the hospital.

An investigation found three kids were chasing kittens in a barn when two of the kids climbed onto two hay bales that were stacked on top of one another. The 9-year-old was still on the ground when the hay bales tipped over – trapping the girl underneath one of them.
