Some younger children were playing at a playground in the Southwest Corner of Airline Mobile Home Park. The younger juveniles went to a home in the 800 Block of Airline, leaving him by himself.  

Sheriff's officials say when the children returned to the playground, they found him hanging from a garden hose tied between two trees.
