Boy dies in accident in locked SC shipping yard

Jul 11, 2011 2:36:00 PM - thestate.com
Police say a 12-year-old boy has died after he was run over with a piece of construction equipment after breaking into a North Charleston shipping container facility with several friends.

Authorities say the other boys, ages 8 to 13, waited several hours to tell anyone what happened and didn't talk about the accident until the dead boy's mother urged them to talk if they knew where her son was.

Investigators say the boys were playing with top loaders Sunday evening when Corion Baptiste fell from the equipment and landed under a top loader being driven by another boy.

Investigators say the boys got into ConGlobal Industries by crawling under a fence.
