WHITEHALL, Ohio (AP) — Police in a central Ohio suburb say a 4-year-old boy died when he apparently pulled a kitchen stove on top of himself.
Whitehall police and the county coroner identified the child in the Thursday afternoon accident as Carlos Mullins Jr. Whitehall is a Columbus suburb.
The Columbus Dispatch ( ) reports that the child was pronounced dead at the apartment where the accident occurred around 2 p.m. Police at first thought the death was suspicious, but evidence seemed to indicate the boy died as a result of an accident with the stove.
The boy was home with his mother and a sibling at the time.
Police are still investigating and will wait for a coroner’s report before making a final ruling in the case.
