A 10-year-old boy found Thursday hanging from a clothesline at an abandoned house in north Minneapolis died Monday night, WCCO reports.
The boy had been found by neighbor Ethel Bonner, a nursing student, who said she got the boy down. "His pulse was very, very faint when I got him off the rope,” Bonner told WCCO. Bonner's sister ran over and started CPR, and Bonner called for help, WCCO reported.
It was not immediately clear how the boy ended up dangling from the line, and police are questioning other neighborhood children in hopes of learning more about what happened. Investigators hope to know more soon, KARE 11 reported.
McKinley neighborhood children use the backyard of the house on Bryant Avenue North as a shortcut, WCCO reported. Neighbors said the boy was visiting from Georgia and had been in the neighborhood a couple weeks.
