BEXAR COUNTY, Tex. — Officials in Texas say it was a “freak accident” that killed a 7-year-old boy near San Antonio.

Authorities responded to a call on Friday that the boy had been buried in the sand by his younger brother at a local horse farm.

The older child was flown to a local hospital, but he did not survive.

Police say the children’s parents operate the horse ranch and were on site at the time of the accident.
