A weight bar is what killed a 5-year old boy from rural La Salle County.

Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll says Paul Miller of Ophir Township died of abdominal trauma.  A weight bar fell onto him.

Miller was flown to St. Francis Medical Center Thursday night where he died.  He was found unresponsive at a home earlier in the day in Ottawa.
