Boy, 4, Crushed by Falling Oven

Investigators say a 4-year-old North Texas boy has died after an oven being stored in his family's backyard fell on him.

The Tarrant County medical examiner, on Tuesday, listed the cause of death as pending for Christian Rincon.

White Settlement police responded to a call on Feb. 15 about a missing child. Lt. J.P. Bevering said the boy's mother went outside but couldn't find him.

Police located Christian beneath a disconnected oven. Authorities believe the boy managed to open the door and the oven fell on him.

The boy was transported to a Fort Worth hospital, where he died Saturday night.

Bevering said the death appears to have been accidental.
