Temple Child Fatally Injured by Falling TV
Temple police are investigating after a 3-year-old child was apparently crushed by a television Monday night.
Officers responded to a home in the 1500 block of South 5th Street shortly after 11 PM. According to Sgt. Mike Bolton, someone was performing CPR on a 3-year-old child when officers arrived.
The child was transported to McLane Children’s Hospital and passed away a short time later.
Sgt. Bolton said it appears the child was climbing a piece of furniture to reach a TV when both fell over atop the toddler.
The child’s body has been scheduled to undergo an autopsy.
