Iron Gate Falls on Young Boy

fgateA 6-year-old boy has been injured and is still in critical condition after an iron gate fell on him in a community located north of Phoenix on Tuesday afternoon.

According to Deputy Joaquin Enriquez with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, the accident occurred at approximately 4:30 p.m. while the boy had been playing at a neighbor’s house located in Desert Hills.
