Authorities say a 3-year-old boy has died after a homemade steel barbecue grill fell on him outside a home in Northeast Texas.

Deputies told the Texarkana Gazette that the grill weighed at least 200 pounds.

The Bowie County Sheriff's Office says the accident happened Sunday afternoon outside a residence near Maud. The boy was taken to a hospital, where he died.

The child's name was not immediately released Monday.

Maud is about 15 miles southwest of Texarkana.
