WINFIELD, Kan. (AP) - A 7-year-old Kansas boy has died after the pony he was riding flipped over on top of him.

KSN-TV reports that Max Henderson of Winfield died Sunday at a hospital. He was a second grader at Country View School, where counselors were on hand to help grieving classmates and staff.

Students in the school were encouraged to show support for Max by wearing a western outfit.

Max’s family said in a statement that he was at home roping a calf sled when his pony flipped over on him. He died after emergency surgery.

Winfield is about 40 miles south of Wichita.
