Cory Denoncourt got trapped in a snowbank in Greece, New York while he was digging a tunnel with some friends when the snow above him caved in. On Dec. 20, MSN reported that Denoncourt, 10, has died. Several children were out playing in the snow, building a sort of hideaway fort when the accident occurred. Witnesses say they saw the young boy face down in the snow after the collapse.

Some people in the area tried to pull the boy out but they noticed that his lips were blue and he wasn't moving. Someone called 911 and the boy was transported to the hospital in "critical condition" where he later died.

Cory Denoncourt's snowbank accident is something that could have happened to any child. A lot of kids like to play on the large snowbanks built up by snow plows. Whether it's climbing to the top and sledding down or borrowing a tunnel through the center, kids have a great time with these huge piles of snow in the winter -- but that doesn't mean that they are safe.
