Man Runs Over Daughter Hiding in Leaf Pile



METHUEN, Mass. (AP) - A 10-year-old girl was killed when her father parked his truck in a pile of leaves in which she and a friend were hiding, the family said. The other girl was seriously injured.


Family members said 36-year-old construction worker James Gravel did not know he had run over the girls until he got out and heard daughter Natalie calling him.


``She said, `Daddy, I can't breathe,''' said Gravel's sister, Jennifer Gravel.


Natalie died at a hospital of head and chest injuries. Eight-year-old Meredith Reid was in critical condition Thursday.


Police said no charges were planned.


Gravel's two other children, ages 11 and 7, were in the truck at the time.
