Child dies on festival hay ride

WOOLMARKET — A 12-year-old boy, injured at a church festival tonight, has died. Timothy Kirby, the son of Rev. Edwin Kirby, pastor of First United Methodist Church, died from blunt force trauma to the head, said Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove. Timothy and some other children were jumping on and off a hay ride and “got tangled in the wheels on the trailer,” Hargrove said.

The accident occurred about 7:50 p.m. He was treated at the scene and taken to Biloxi Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9:10 p.m.

The church is located on Mississippi 67 North.
