Cow Tramples Boy to Death

Posted: Updated:

An 8-year-old boy was trampled to death by a cow Saturday in Georgetown, Massachusetts, authorities confirmed.

According to the Essex County District Attorney's Office, the boy was helping his father exercise the family's cattle. They have about 20 that they show at fairs. At one point, officials say, the cow got spooked and trampled him.

A family friend said the boy was very experienced around the animals.

The DA's office said foul play is not suspected.

The boy's identity has not been released.
