ONEIDA TOWNSHIP (AP) - Authorities say a 12-year-old mid-Michigan boy died when a swing set in his yard toppled onto him.

The Lansing State Journal reports that Wayland Baker was playing in his yard Saturday evening in Eaton County’s Oneida Township, about 10 miles west of Lansing, when the swing set fell.

Eaton County Undersheriff Fred McPhail says the base of the swing set had apparently rusted. The child was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Wayland attended Hayes Middle School.
