Rest in peace, 8-year-old boy who died in bizarre accident while playing basketball at home

Nothing is more tragic than the death of a young person. It also hurts a lot more when an 8-year-old kid passes away.

In this story, a young child, Eli Hill, was having an ordinary day at home when his small family’s world was turned upside down.

The day was routine in Corbin, Kentucky. Eli Hill, a young boy, was shooting hoops at home when the unthinkable happened.

Eli the Little got a stool so he could dunk the basketball. As the backboard slid from the pole as he was ready to do it, the child received terrible injuries to his chest.
