Young boy dies in tragic accident

Posted: Updated:

Granger, WA -  A family loses a little boy in what appears to be a tragic accident on West Satus road near Granger.

Deputies say a six year old boy was with his father and two other people while they fed hay to their cattle last night.

Deputies say it was snowing and dark out in the field, and the boy headed back to a nearby house, but never showed up.

They say his father found him in lying in the field and it appears he was probably struck by the pickup his father was using, or kicked by a cow.

The boy was taken to Toppenish hospital and pronounced dead at the scene.
