STANTON, Ky. (AP) – A coroner says a Boy Scout has died when a tree fell on his tent during a camping trip in Kentucky’s Red River Gorge.

Wolfe County coroner J. Frank Porter tells media outlets that 11-year-old Jack A. Rose was camping with his Boy Scout troop from Louisville when the tree fell Saturday night.

Porter says the tree struck the boy in the head, killing him instantly. Two doctors who were camping nearby assisted first responders, but attempts to revive the boy were unsuccessful.
