Autopsy Planned For Toddler Who Fell From Staples Skybox
Lucas Anthony Tang, the Garden Grove 2-year-old who died after falling 28 feet from a luxury skybox at Staples Center on Sunday night, suffered massive head injuries, however an official cause of death is still pending, reports KTLA. Results of the autopsy planned for Tuesday are expected to be released Wednesday, according to Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter.
The child was pronounced dead at L.A. County-USC Medical Center, according to LAPD officials. Witnesses say the boy was moving his arms and legs when he was placed onto a stretcher, reports KTLA. According to police, the child-abuse unit is investigating because of the victim's age.
