A five-year-old boy died Saturday after a farming accident near Beaumont, Alta.

Leduc and Beaumont RCMP were called to the farm on Highway 814 on Saturday afternoon in response to an accident, accompanied by Emergency Medical Services and fire services.

Emergency personnel attempted to revive the boy, but failed. The child died at the scene of the accident.

Const. Deanna Fontaine with the Leduc and Region RCMP told CBC News that police are not sure how the boy was injured, but the accident apparently involved a utility trailer.

"It's involving the use of farm equipment and a utility trailer," she said.

"We have different members who are talking to people about what happened and talking to an analyst and trying to figure out exactly what happened and to deal with it."

The RCMP continue to investigate the accident. The child's name has not been released upon his family's request.
