Authorities say a 4-year-old boy died of head injuries after a treehouse collapsed and fell on him near Houston.
Rex Evans, police chief in the Cleveland Independent School District, said Kade Contreras was hurt Christmas Eve at a relative's home in Splendora.
Evans, who is also a family friend, said Kade died Wednesday at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston where he had been on life support. Evans said tests showed he had no brain activity.
Kade was the youngest of four brothers. Evans said the boy had been "looking forward to Christmas."
