BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama boy has died after falling out of a wagon that's commonly used at a children's hospital in Birmingham.
Red wagons have been used for years to transport young patients and supplies at Children's of Alabama. The facility has solicited donations of a certain type of Radio Flyer wagon in the past.
But media outlets report that 4-year-old Noah Vera of Anniston fell out of a wagon at the hospital's dental clinic and suffered a head injury last week. He was admitted to intensive care, and the Jefferson County Coroner's Office says the child died Thursday afternoon.
A statement from the hospital expresses sadness over the child's death. It also cites patient privacy laws in declining to release details about what happened.
