PORT ORCHARD, Wash. - A 10-year-old Washington state boy who was found hanging from a tree last week has died at a Tacoma hospital.

Kitsap County sheriff's investigators determined the death of Tyler James Wade, of Port Orchard, was an accident.

The Kitsap Sun reports he was playing with friends Oct. 16 and apparently had been trying to stage a prank. His friends found him hanging from a scarf in a tree.
