ELLENSBURG, Wash. (AP) - The Kittitas County sheriff's office says a 7-year-old Roslyn boy who was digging in a sand pile near his home died after it collapsed, burying his head, arms and shoulders.

The sheriff's office says the parents of Clayton Everley found him half-buried Wednesday afternoon and started CPR. The boy's father had an A.E.D. (automated electronic defibrillator) in his work vehicle and attempted to use it.

Clayton was flown to Children's Hospital in Seattle where he died Wednesday evening.
