Boy who fell from slide died of heart defect, medical examiner finds


A 2-year-old boy who fell from a slide in a Columbia playground last month died of a heart defect, the state medical examiner said yesterday.

Dai'mon Akeil Anderson-Fowlkes was being supervised about noon April 7 by his 20-year-old uncle while playing at a small apartment-complex playground in Harper's Choice village.

The boy fell from a slide and was found by paramedics near the patio of his family's apartment in the 5400 block of Harper's Farm Road. The cause of death was a coronary artery anomaly, the medical examiner said.
