EVANSVILLE — Police in Evansville say a 4-year-old boy was fatally injured when a large television apparently fell on him.

Police say it appears the television fell off its stand and landed on Gennix Starks. The Evansville Courier & Press and WFIE-TV report emergency workers were called to an apartment where the boy was injured Wednesday night and that he later died at a hospital.

Police say investigators believe the boy's death was accidental based on physical evidence at the apartment and preliminary medical reports.
