An 18-month-old Richland boy died Sunday evening after being struck by a large unsecured television that fell from a table.

The boy, who suffered extensive head injuries, was tended to by Richland Fire Department paramedics and then staff at Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland, but he died at the hospital, authorities said.

He was in an apartment at 69 Jadwin Avenue in Richland. His mother, her boyfriend and a neighbor were there at the time but reportedly in a different room, police said.

An autopsy is scheduled Tuesday.
