BEAVER, Pa. (AP) — A lawyer representing the estates of two toddler sisters who were crushed by a fallen dresser in their Pennsylvania home has sued a Babies R Us store and a New Jersey furniture maker.

The lawsuit was filed in Beaver County on behalf of 3-year-old Ryeley Beatty and her 2- year-old sister, Brooklyn.

The lawsuit claims their mother bought the dresser built by Baby Cache Inc. of Piscataway, New Jersey, from a Babies R Us store in Cranberry in 2010. The dresser fell on the girls in their Aliquippa home July 4. Brooklyn died that day and Ryeley two days later.

Officials from the retailer and the dresser company didn’t immediately comment on the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges the dresser didn’t have an anchoring strap to keep it from falling. The suit seeks unspecified damages.
