PHOENIX (AP) - An 8-year-old Arizona boy who was injured while trying to ride a homemade zip line has died.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said Friday that the boy died three days after he suffered a strangulation injury June 24 at a home near Buckeye.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Calbert Gillett tells The Arizona Republic that the incident appears to have been a “tragic accident.” Nobody has been arrested.
