The family of an Eagle Mountain boy who accidentally hung himself is asking for help to cover his funeral.
Orion Gunderson, 11, died Sunday after he was playing on an indoor swing, got tangled and could not free himself, according to the Utah County Sheriff’s Office. His father’s cousin, Aaron Gunderson, has set up a website at fundly.com to raise $10,000 to help the family.
To donate, visit fundly.com/in-memory-of-orion-gunderson. As of 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, the page had garnered more than $7,000.
