Police said that the event occurred late Sunday afternoon and that the girl was transferred from a local hospital to Elliot Hospital in Manchester before she died. House Speaker William O’Brien called it an ‘‘unspeakable tragedy’’ and said House members are keeping their colleague in their thoughts and prayers.
