Child, 3, pinned under wind turbine dies

A three-year-old child was killed Saturday night when he was pinned under a residential wind turbine in southwestern Ontario.

A three-year-old child was killed Saturday night when he was pinned under a residential wind turbine in southwestern Ontario.

Karen Wilson lives down the street from the family and said her daughter-in-law used to babysit the little boy, who police have identified as Logan Hallahan.

“He was just an active little three-year-old,” said Wilson.

The force of the children playing on the structure’s generator pole loosened the strap and caused the weight of the turbine to lift the generator pole off the ground.

The boy, who was sitting on the generator pole closest to the turbine, slid down the pole and landed on it and a second pole fell on top of him, pinning him.
