WHITE SETTLEMENT, Texas (AP) — Investigators say a 4-year-old North Texas boy has died after an oven being stored in his family's backyard fell on him.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office on Tuesday listed the cause of death as pending for Christian Rincon.

White Settlement police on Feb. 15 responded to a call about a missing child. Lt. J.P. Bevering says the boy's mother went outside but couldn't find him.

Police located Christian beneath a disconnected oven. Authorities believe the boy managed to open the door and the oven fell on him.

The boy was transported to a Fort Worth hospital, where he died Saturday night.

Bevering says the death appears to have been accidental.
