According to family relatives, a 6-year-old boy perished in a logging accident in Washington as his older brother was attempting to save him. A stray log started rolling directly toward the 6-year-old while Chris Bell, 27, was out getting firewood with his younger brother Noah and his father, a family friend wrote in an online campaign.
Carol Jones posted on the GoFundMe website, “While getting firewood, a fallen tree began to roll, and was on a perilous route. Unfortunately, Noah did not survive despite Chris’ rapid actions in trying to save his younger brother. Bell was pinned beneath the tree and, according to Jones’ post, was taken by helicopter to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane with “severe injuries.”
