COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities say a 3-year-old boy has died after he was struck in the head by a falling tree limb while playing at an Irmo park.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts says Jacoby Latta was at a church picnic at Irmo Community Park Saturday afternoon when he was hit by the branch.

The boy died several hours later at the hospital.

Watts says an autopsy Sunday determined Latta died from a head injury.
