Boy Accidentally Hangs Himself

A five year-old boy is in intensive care after a horrible accident at his home.

Authorities responded Tuesday night to 132 Reedy Lane in Richlands in Onslow County. The sheriffs department says they transported the child to Onslow Memorial hospital after he accidentally hung himself in a mesh laundry bag.

The sheriff's department says the boy pulled his toys out of a bag that was hanging on his bunk bed, and climbed in the bag. The bag then slipped off the bed, causing the string to tighten around his head, cutting off blood circulation.

We'll keep you posted on his condition.
