A 6-year-old girl died in a snowmobile accident near Leech Lake on Monday.
The Cass County Sheriff reports she and a 35-year-old woman were riding a 2004 Ski-Doo in their yard when the machine hit a stump and went down an emankment into a tree.
First responders tried to save the 6-year-old, but she was pronounced dead at the scene. The 35-year-old woman was treated at the scene and brought to a Bemidji hospital for further treatment.
It happened around 3:15 p.m. in Gould Township, a rural part of Federal Dam.
An autopsy is scheduled for the child.
