MUKILTEO — An 8-year-old boy was killed Thursday when an iron gate fell on him outside a Mukilteo church.
The accident was reported about 4:30 p.m. at the Sulamita Slavic Church on Evergreen Drive, off Cyrus Way.
The boy died at the scene, said Brian McMahan, the Mukilteo assistant fire chief.
The gate was part of a large wrought iron fence, McMahan said. The boy is believed to be from Snohomish County.
Additional information was not immediately available.
This story has been modified to correct the age of the boy, who officials had originally said was 10 years old.
