LODI - A Lodi family is mourning the loss of their 6-year-old son who died after a freak accident last night.

Witnesses say Lazarus Ayon and his older brother, Ivan, were throwing a child's scooter in the air when it got caught on a clothesline attached to a pole. The pole fell on Lazarus' head, causing a head injury. Ivan, 10, underwent surgery for a broken leg.

Police say paramedics performed CPR on Lazarus but were unable to save him.
