San Francisco : Toddler killed when dolphin statue falls on him

A 2-year-old boy was killed Friday when a 6-foot metal dolphin statue fell on him while his family was walking along a busy street at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco.

The accident happened around 11:30 a.m. in 220 block of Jefferson Street, said Gordon Shyy, a spokesman for San Francisco police.

The store is located near the Fisherman’s Wharf Hotel where the family had been staying on vacation. Authorities say the boy’s 6-year-old younger sister tried to stop the fall

In a posting on on the family’s website the parents of Kayson Shelton wrote:

“Our hearts are greatly saddened at the loss of Kayson Shelton. On Friday, June 6, 2014 Kayson was on a walk with his family at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, California when a statue fell over on him and crushed him. “ “The last words he spoke in this life were “I love you,” the post continued. “Such a beautiful and loving child, and while we are greatly comforted in the knowledge that families are forever, we will dearly miss his smiling face until then.”

The incident remains under investigation. The Majestic Collection – the store where the statue stood — was cited on Friday for violating of a code barring the placing of unstable displays outside a store.

The Shelton family has set up a website to raise money for his funeral.
