Oneida Township, Eaton County - A 12-year old boy is killed when the swing-set he was playing on collapsed. The accident happened Saturday at about 6:25pm at a home in the 100 block of E. Mt. Hope Highway in Oneida Township southwest of Grand Ledge. Eaton County Sheriff's Office Undersheriff Fred McPhail says Wayland Baker was playing outside on the family swing-set with other children, when the base gave way and the metal set collapsed. The child was struck in the face and throat area. Emergency medical technicians came, but were unable to revive him. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
