EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah (AP) - An 11-year-old Eagle Mountain boy is dead after deputies say he accidentally hung himself on an indoor swing in his basement.
Utah County sheriff's deputies say they got reports about the accident a little before noon on Sunday. The boy, named Orion Gunderson, was taken American Fork Hospital and later flown to Primary Children's Medical Center in extremely critical condition.
Authorities say he died Monday morning.
Deputies say the boy had been playing on the swing and couldn't free himself when his younger brother told his father that something was wrong.
Officials say the father immediately called for help.
Deputies say there's nothing suspicious about the circumstances.
