CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Emergency crews jumped into action Thursday afternoon after a TV set fell on a child's head at the Mary McLeod Bethune Day Nursery in the 900 block of Kinney.

It was around 1:30 p.m. when officials say children were returning from a field trip and being seated. That's when a seven-year old boy decided to get up and push the TV set, causing it to fall on top of his head.

"The teacher was standing there at the gym door and waiting on the others to come out of the bathroom, but she was standing there at the door with the kids sitting where they were suppose to be, and the one child took off and went to the television," said Jimmie McCurn, executive director the Mary McLeod Bethune Day Nursery.

The child was taken to Driscoll Children's Hospital. As of 5 p.m., the child was still undergoing tests to determine the extent of his injuries.
