MAUD (April 16, 2012)--A 3-year-old Bowie County boy died after a 200-pound barbecue grill fell on him, evidently as he was trying to climb on it, deputies said.
The Bowie County Sheriff's Office identified the victim Monday as Hunter Scott.
Chief Deputy Larry Parker said the boy’s death Sunday appears to have been an accident.
Parker said the homemade grill toppled on the boy at the family's home near Maud, about 15 miles southwest of Texarkana.
Parker says the victim's 14-year-old brother heard a noise and discovered his injured sibling.
The youngster died at a Texarkana hospital.
Parker says the grill was not in use at the time of the accident.
