A five-year-old boy has died after falling out of the bucket of a tractor and getting hit by a piece of equipment, according to Grey County OPP.

Police were called to a rural residence on the East Back Line in the Township of Chatsworth on Thursday at 7:41 p.m.

Officers say the victim was one of several siblings riding in the bucket of a tractor, pulling a “packer” implement, driven by a 13-year-old sibling.  Police say the victim sustained fatal injuries after he had fallen out of the bucket and was struck by the equipment.

Resuscitation was attempted.  The victim was transported to hospital where he was pronounced dead by the attending physician.

He identified as Marcus Dekker of Chatsworth.

The investigation is concluded pending the results of the post-mortem examination which is scheduled for today in London.
