A family is devastated over the sudden loss of a 4-year-old boy who died while playing near a barbecue pit.

Ironically, the barbecue pit was shaped like a giant gun.

4-year-old Bryan Jara of Texas, was playing outside his home in Liberty County, while his mother was doing work in the yard.

The boy began climbing onto the uniquely shaped barbecue pit before it suddenly tipped over. Sadly, the barbecue pit fell on top of the boy’s head, crushing him.

His mother and neighbors rushed to help him. Deputy Ruben Arellano performed CPR on the child while waiting for an ambulance.

The boy was rushed to the San Jacinto Methodist Hospital in Baytown, where he was pronounced dead.
