A 4-year-old child died Monday morning in Zumbrota, Minn., after a swing set collapsed, according to the Zumbrota Police Department.
The child was swinging when the structure fell, according to a police statement. Police officers, an ambulance, and a medical helicopter were dispatched to the Zumbrota residence about 10:12 a.m. Lifesaving efforts at the house were unsuccessful.
It’s the second time this month that a Minnesota child has died on a swing set. Nine-year-old Gavin Ludewig died on Aug. 1 when he became tangled in the chains of a swing set at a house in Comfrey, about 134 miles southwest of the Twin Cities.
