A 13-year-old girl has died following a freak hammock accident in Des Moines, Iowa, US.

Peri Sagun died after she jumped into the hammock with her older sister, causing a brick pillar to collapse and strike her on the head.

One end of the hammock was attached to a tree next to the teen’s home, while the other was tied to the pillar.

Peri’s father, Mustafa, attempted CPR and first aid on immediately after the incident, but she later died in hospital.
