SOUTH LOS ANGELES (CBS) —  A 3-year-old boy was killed Thursday after a television reportedly fell on him in his South Los Angeles home.

The accident was reported at 9:37 a.m. in an apartment in the 900 block of 82nd Street, said Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

“The child was transported to a hospital in grave condition,” Scott said.

KCAL9 reported that the child died at the hospital but the coroner was unable to confirm the report.

“We’re just right now investigating it as an accident,” Detective Tracey Gray of the Los Angeles Police Department told KCAL9.

The boy’s parents were home at the time of the accident, according to KCAL9.

    Kid was not going to have much of a life growing up in that s***hole anyway.
    At least the parents will save some money (although probably the kid had a single mom).
