Summer on the golf course is one of the best times of the year. Sadly, a tragedy has just destroyed one family who was simply out enjoying the fun activity.

The incident took place in Utah. According to reports, a young girl died after being struck by a stray ball.

"A 6-year-old Utah girl was tragically killed when an errant golf ball hit by her dad struck her in the back of the neck, according to a report. Aria Hill was sitting in a golf cart on the cart path at the Links at Sleepy Ridge in Orem on Monday when her dad hit the ball that took her life, authorities told local station KSL," wrote Fox.

Aria was immediately rushed to a local hospital. She was then transferred to a children's hospital where she passed away.

"The golf cart was not positioned directly behind or in front of Aria’s dad — it was between 45 and 90 degrees to his left, Colledge said," according to Fox.
