Alorton Boy Killed When TV Falls on Him

St. Louis (KMOX) One year old Marshawn Billips was riding in the back seat of his mother’s car when she lost control of the vehicle and struck a pole Friday afternoon in the 37-hundred block of Bond Avenue in Alorton.

An older model flat screen TV was also in the back seat. The crash caused the TV to fall on the boy-causing head and body injuries.

Marshawn was airlifted to Children’s Hospital where he died of his injuries a few hours later.

The mother-Vernita Billips and another child-her 5 year old daughter-sustained minor injuries.
