Authorities announced that the body of a boy killed while dirt-biking has been identified.
WCCO reports that the boy is Nicholas Engler, the 9-year-old son of the Oak Grove Assistant Fire Chief.
"Every safety precaution was taken. The boy was wearing a helmet, chest guard, he was also wearing boots, gloves, and he was an avid motocross biker. Certainly the father and family knew inherent risks and protected their family the best they could, with the protection equipment they used that day," said Lt. Lenzmeier. "I have an 8-year-old, 11-and 12-year-old, and I cannot comprehend the pain that is going through the family."
Kare 11 reports that, so far, the official cause of death has not been identified.
