CHESTERFIELD Co., Va. (WSET) — A six-year-old boy from Chesterfield has died after a tree fell on his family's home Friday afternoon during the high wind event.
WRIC reported that the six-year-old Anthony Hamilton was taken to VCU Medical Center where doctors told his mother that his organs were failing.
“Doctors say we have to let him go,” the mother told WRIC.
Strong winds caused the tree to fall on their mobile home around 2 a.m. Friday, March 2.
Chesterfield Fire and EMS crews, as well as their technical rescue team, responded to the scene. Crews had to use special equipment to stabilize the tree and once it was stabilized, crews used saws to cut the bunk bed to get the boy out.
