Specialists who talked with the child confirmed the 3-year-old pulled the trigger.

"I just can’t imagine in today's society that there would be a gun a loaded gun where a toddler could get it," Bennett said.

Tulsa police said the woman's husband is a truck driver and was out of the state when the accident happened.

Officers have not released the identity of the woman killed.
