MALIBU, Calif. (AP) - Investigators are trying to determine who threw objects from a bluff-top compound owned by musician Kenny G that struck a 9-year-old girl on the head.
The incident happened June 23 when Brooke Porter was at the beach with her family and she was hit in the head, according to Los Angeles County sheriff's detectives. She needed four stitches to close her wound.
Sheriff's officials said they believe two teens on the musician's property - neither related to him - threw the objects that hit Brooke 50 feet below.
Although authorities would not say what was thrown, Kenny G's attorney said Hershey's Kisses and a PowerBar energy bar were thrown.
"I have been informed a PowerBar hit the girl accidentally on the head," said attorney Lee Blackman. "It was just an accident."
He said Kenny G's wife paid the girl's medical bill.
The girl's parents were upset about the incident and believe whoever threw the items targeted Brooke and her brother, Chase, a 12-year-old with Down's syndrome and autism.
