DIXON, Ill. (AP) – The accidental electrocution last month of a 3-year-old boy from Amboy was caused by current from an improperly grounded family camper.

Landyn Gerald Keener died June 30 when he touched a door handle of the camper while standing on wet ground. It’s a problem known among RV enthusiasts as “hot skin.”

Lee County Sheriff John Varga calls it a tragic accident and says nobody was at fault.
