 A three-year-old South Texas boy has died after a television accidentally fell on him when he climbed some furniture.     

The Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office on Thursday identified the victim as Elias Rodriguez of San Antonio.     

San Antonio police say the accident happened Wednesday night at the boy's home and the child died at a hospital. Police say a dresser that held the TV also fell on the youngster.     

The mother told investigators that she had stepped out of the room for a moment when the accident happened.
