A four-year-old boy died from stabs wounds inflicted by his uncle. The incident took place in Piedmont, part of the Greater Oklahoma City Metro Area. According to a February 24 report by KWTV Channel 9 News in Oklahoma City, the stabbing was accidental.

According to the local police, Chris Coates, the child's uncle, was whittling some wood while in a hammock. The child was pushing the hammock. It broke. Coates fell on the little boy, accidentally stabbing him.

“That is so sad,” Melanie Pitts, a mother of two from El Reno, said. “I feel horrible for the family. It is going to be hard for his uncle to live with this, even though it sounds like an accident.”

The child was taken to a local hospital. The little boy died later for the knife wound.

This cased will be sent to the Canadian County District Attorney's office. Despite that, it is believed that the little boys death was accidental. It is unlikely that charges will be filed against Chris Coates.
