ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) --
An Orlando toddler was killed when a television weighing more than 100 pounds fell on him.

Police say 2-year-old Blake Garriss was leaning against a TV
stand Wednesday afternoon when the 40-inch set fell forward. A
woman called 911 to report that a child was seriously injured and
not breathing.

The child was taken by helicopter to a hospital, where he was
pronounced dead later that evening.
