Oklahoma City teenager falls to his death

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A 13-year-old Oklahoma City boy has died after he apparently fell to his death in a steep ravine behind his house.

The teen and his three brothers had built a swing in one of the trees along the ravine. Neighbors said the boys had been playing there Sunday.

Neighbors say its possible the boy had been playing on the tree swing and fell.

Oklahoma City police Sergeant Mike Klika says investigators don't know exactly what happened. Officials say the brothers had been playing and realized the 13-year-old hadn't been seen in a few hours.

His brothers later went looking for him and found the boy laying in the creek.

The teen was dead when emergency workers arrived.

The boy's name hasn't been released.
