6-year-old dies after TV falls on him

WILLMAR, Minn. -- A 6-year-old Willmar boy has died after a television fell on him.

Willmar police say they were called to a home on 4th Street Southeast around 7 p.m. Thursday. When they arrived they learned from witnesses that an older-style television -- weighing in excess of 190 pounds -- fell off a stand and hit the child on the head.

The boy was taken to Rice Hospital in Willmar where, after lengthy resuscitation efforts, he was pronounced dead.

An investigation is underway, but police say there doesn't appear to be signs of foul-play or neglect.
