DAYTON, Texas (AP) — Investigators say a 3-year-old boy has died after being kicked by a horse while at his family’s rural Houston-area home.

The Liberty County Sheriff’s Office says the accident happened Wednesday night at a residence near Dayton.

Dayton police say the horse kicked the boy in the chest. The child was transported to a Houston hospital and later died. His name wasn’t immediately released.

Further details weren’t immediately available on the horse.

Dayton is 30 miles northeast of Houston.
