Paris — A 12-year-old girl died in a fall from a French lighthouse during filming for a television show about some of the country’s most famous monuments.

Filming on the show, “The Favorite Monument of the French,” was suspended, France Television said on Friday.

The police prefecture confirmed the death Thursday evening at the Cap Ferret lighthouse in Bordeaux but had no details. Sud Ouest, the local news site, said the aerial acrobatics company Adrenaline had been hired for the show and that the girl, whose father owns the company, was part of the act.

Adrenaline’s Facebook page shows acrobats suspended around the lighthouse during a nighttime performance.
