A six-year-old Utah girl who hit the golf course with her father died in the aftermath of a hit.
The girl was hit while sitting in a golf cart on a course in Orem, a city south of Salt Lake City, just before 10:30 am Monday, NBC affiliate KSL reported, citing police.
The station identified the girl as Aria Hill.
Police Lt. Trent Colledge told the Associated Press that the ball hit the 6-year-old at the Salt Lake City hospital, where they died from Monday night's injuries.
The golf cart was not directly in front of the girl's father when she was hit but was around 45 to 90 degrees to his left, Colledge told KSL.
David Smith, Aria's uncle, told KSL that the girl's father often took her golfing.
"She was his golfing buddy, she loved doing it and she was always in the cart," he told the station.
Steven Marett, The Head of Gold at the Golf Course, Links at Sleepy Ridge, told KSL that "this is absolutely unimaginable" and "devastating."
