According to reports, the boy was with his father, who was trying to find a leak in a mounted medium truck tire, and was putting air in the tire while it remained on the truck.

The tire exploded, police said, throwing the boy “several feet and knocking him unconscious.” The boy was later pronounced dead at the hospital, and the man was treated for minor injuries.
