LEHI, Utah — A 5-year-old boy was flown to Primary Children’s Hospital in critical condition Tuesday evening after suffering an accidental strangulation injury.

Capt. Shad Hatfield of the Lehi Fire Department said it happened around 6:30 p.m. at a home near 1700 W 400 S in Lehi.

The boy’s neck became entangled in a jump rope as he was going down on a slide on a children’s playset, according to Hatfield.
