A 6-year-old boy died after being crushed by a concrete birdbath at a relative's home in unincorporated South San Gabriel on Tuesday.

Hunter Brule of Lake Arrowhead knocked over the birdbath while he was playing with a dog in his relative's backyard.

The bath crushed Brule's chest and was said to have weighed between 100 to150 pounds.

Brule died at the hospital. His chest injuries were determined to be the cause of death, and the coroner has deemed the death an accident.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.
