Such a tragedy!
A 9-year-old boy died on Memorial Day after tumbling off of a parade float and hitting the concrete directly on top of his head.
Police in Bainbridge in Chenango County say the boy was on the float when the truck pulling the float suddenly stopped, then lurched forward which caused the young boy to fall.
He died later at a hospital.
Police say the deceased's family has requested them not to release his name.
This is so terrible, and our hearts go out to the family for their loss.
Truly a sad day for us all when someone so young passes away.
