Two horse-drawn hay carts figured into a gruesome farming accident that took the life of a 6-year-old Amish boy in Chester County, Pa., on Wednesday, Philly.com reports.

It happened in Honey Brook, Pa., as the boy was positioned between the two carts and became pinned as they passed each other along North Birdell Road, the website writes, adding:

When state police and emergency medical personnel arrived, the boy was alert and conscious. He was taken to Paoli Hospital, where his heart stopped in the operating room.

The boy had suffered massive internal injuries in the accident, and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The death has been ruled accidental.
