A 4-year-old boy was tragically killed by a barbecue shaped like a giant revolver in Liberty County, Texas, last week. Bryan Jara pulled the large structure over and was pinned beneath it, according to the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office.
His mother was in the yard doing chores when she heard the heavy object fall. She found her son unconscious underneath it.
Neighbours heard her screaming and ran to help.
"I just heard the lady scream and once we got over there, we just saw the grill was on top of the kid's head," said Juan Martinez. "It was pretty heavy, whenever they or we lifted it up, we barely were able to pick it up because it was so heavy."
Deputy Ruben Arellano responded to the call and performed CPR on Bryan until an ambulance arrived. But the boy was pronounced dead at San Jacinto Methodist Hospital in Baytown.
Investigators believe Bryan was trying to crawl on the barbrcue when it fell over on him.
The boy's death appears to be a "tragic accident," they added.
