BENBROOK, Texas -- A 9-year-old Fort Worth-area girl has died after a horse threw her and dragged her for about a mile and a half over the weekend.

Family friends say Juliette Brown was horseback riding with her father near Lake Benbrook on Saturday night when she popped the top on a soda can, scaring her horse. Family friend Cathy Wickwire says the horse threw Juliette and dragged her.

Benbrook police say the Haltom City girl was airlifted to Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth, where she died of a severe head injury.
