KANSAS CITY, Missouri — An 8-month-old Kansas City boy has died a day after a television set fell on him.

Emergency crews were called at 11:10 a.m. Tuesday in response to the accident and took the baby to a hospital in critical condition. A police spokesman issued a news release Wednesday morning saying the boy later died.

Neighbors say they are saddened by the news of the infant's death, and that it should serve as a reminder to other parents to keep a close eye on their children.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says a child dies every two weeks when a TV or piece of furniture calls onto him or her.

Officials say tip-over accidents are tragic and 100 percent preventable.
