Child died after headboard injury

Police say a three-year-old Marshall County boy has died after a heavy headboard fell on top of him.

It happened around 1:30 Sunday afternoon in the 12000 block of 4A Road in Plymouth.

Investigators say three-year-old Malachi Palmer and a five-year-old child were playing together, when they accidentally knocked over the headboard.

It had been set against a wall while the parents were cleaning in the home.

Emergency crews responded to the scene and found the younger child having trouble breathing.

Both children were taken to a Fort Wayne hospital, where three-year-old Malachi later died.
