Little Boy Dies at Cemetery When Tombstone Falls on Him

A four year old little boy lost his life yesterday while he was at a cemetery. Carson Dean Cheney was at the cemetery with his family. They had stopped to take some pictures of the area since it was historic, but it ended in tragedy for them.

A tombstone that was 6 foot tall fell over on top of the little 4 year old boy. This was at the Glenwood Cemetery in Park City. It actually weighed hundreds of pounds and was 4 inches thick. He was holding it and the metal keeping it up broke and then it fell over on him.

Carson Dean Cheney did not die on scene, but did die shortly after when he got to the hospital. They did everything they could to save him, but it was too late after three men pulled the tombstone off of the small child.

This is a tragedy and sounds like a total accident. Poor Carson had his life taken too soon.

    OMG! I read this in the paper. It is so horrible. Apparently he was trying to make some other kids smile for a picture by hiding behind the tombstone and popping back out acting like a leprechaun. It is such a tragedy! 🙁
