My daughter died when she was one year old. She used to play with her brethren on a swing that I made for them after their insistence.
The rope of the swing was cut and I wanted to leave it that way but they cried in order for me to have it fixed for them. After a while, I went to sleep and the girl was behind me. She went onto that swing and the rope got twisted around her neck and killed her. The question now is: Is there any sin on me in this regard? Should I observe fasting (Sawm) as a Kaffarah (expiation) for this although I did not deliberately kill her?

If the reality is as you have mentioned, there is no sin on you regarding the death of this girl because you were not negligent in this and what happened to her was beyond your control.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
