E. Idaho boy dies in backyard explosion
AMMON, Idaho (AP) — Authorities in eastern Idaho say a 14-year-old boy building a homemade gun or cannon with a friend died following an explosion.
The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Offices says Carson Eva of Ammon died Monday after a piece of wood from the explosion became impaled in his chest.
Sheriff’s Office spokesman Bryan Lovell tells the Post Register that the boys were working on a backyard project and not building a weapon.
Authorities are continuing to investigate. A GoFundMe page has been created for his family.
