Boy Killed by Falling Television Set
Posted July 18th, 2013 @ 4:48am by Jim Forsyth

  A tragedy on the city's northeast side last night.  A 3 year old boy was killed when a television set fell on him.


  Police say Elias Rodriguez was climbing on a dresser in a bedroom at his home in the 5300 block of Vista Glen, which is off Judson Road, when what officers described as a 'large television set' that was on top of the dresser fell on him.


  The boy was rushed to University Hospital by airlife with head injuries, but he was pronounced dead at the hospital.


  It is the second tragedy of this type in the last year.  Last fall, a boy was killed when a TV fell on top of him in a home off Toepperwein Road, not far from where last night's accident happened.
