An Arlington Heights child died Sunday after a television set fell on top of him inside his home.

Six-year-old Karl Clermont was pronounced dead at a local hospital, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Arlington Heights police say the boy was alone in the downstairs of the home when the TV fell on him.

An aunt, who was upstairs with a younger sibling, found the boy underneath the TV and was unable to move the set off of the child.

Police suspect the boy may have tried to climb the television.
