BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) — A 10-year-old Whatcom County, Wash., boy has died from injuries he suffered during an apparent accidental hanging at his home.

The Bellingham Herald reports that Caleb Kors was an aspiring street and circus performer often seen at the Bellingham Farmers Market. He died Tuesday evening at a Seattle hospital of injuries suffered Monday. Under his stage name “Flip,” he performed acrobatics and juggling tricks with the Bellingham Circus Guild.

Sheriff Bill Elfo says the boy might have been rehearsing on or tinkering with a circus prop inside the home when the accident happened. A medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
