A tombstone fell on a third-grader and killed him during a field trip to a Revolutionary War cemetery Wednesday. Nine-year-old James Wies appeared to have died of a skull fracture, said Richland County coroner's investigator Paul Jones. He said the boy jumped atop the 5-foot-tall tombstone and grabbed it when it toppled backward. "It was just a freak accident," Jones said. "With the injury he sustained, and with the way it landed on him, it was definitely fatal. No one could have done anything."
