A Tulsa toddler is listed in critical condition after a large television falls on him Monday afternoon.

Tulsa Police say two young boys were playing at a home near Pine and Mingo, when the parents heard a scream. The boy was found underneath a 27” TV, which had fallen on his head.

Officers are not sure exactly what caused the TV it to fall.

"With toddlers they're climbing they're jumping. You know you hear about child proofing your house. This is another example of maybe the nightstand wasn't secure or the TV stand wasn't secure," said Sgt. Les Young.

Tulsa Police's Child Crisis Unit is still investigating the case, but they say it appears to just be a terrible accident.
