LILLIWAUP, Wash. (AP) - A 12-year-old Washington state boy on a Boy Scout trip has died after a log that he and his friends were pushing down a hill caught his jacket and rolled over him.

The Kitsap Sun reports (https://is.gd/sA1MHM ) that the boy and three friends were trying to roll the log down a rocky slope Saturday into Lena Lake in the Olympic National Forest, across Puget Sound from Seattle.

Initial reports had said a tree had fallen on him.

Jefferson County sheriff’s Deputy Joe Nole says the victim was on a Boy Scout trip with nine other boys, including his 14-year-old brother, and four adults, one of them his father.

Nole said the victim’s brother stayed with him while the other boys ran to get help from the adults.
