NEW JERSEY — We are saddened to report that a 4-year-old boy has been killed in a freak accident in New Jersey.

The young boy was playing in his backyard in when a large tree from a neighbors yard fell and killed him, WPIX reports.

Police and EMS received a 911 call reporting that a child was trapped under a tree at 12:48 p.m. on Saturday.

By the time the first responders arrived on the scene, the child had died, according to reports.

A giant oak tree in the yard of a home on Clara Street in North Haledon could be seen across the yard of a home on Lotz Street.

Neighbors said the tree came crashing down without warning. What caused the tree to topple is unclear since it was a clear, mild day.

Barbara Bleeker who lives nearby was at a loss for words.

“It is very incidental that somebody was having their child outside in the backyard and something would happen like,” Bleeker said.

So tragic. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family.

Rest in peace little buddy…

God Bless.
