Landrum, S.C. - Greenville County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating the death of a 2-year-old boy.

According to a report, the sheriff's office responded to a home on Laurinda Lane in Landrum around 11:30pm Tuesday. Deputies found the child unresponsive.

Investigators say the toddler was playing at the home with a 4-year-old girl when a piece of furniture -- a chest of drawers -- fell on top of them.

The 2-year-old was pronounced dead at the hospital. Medics also took the 4 year old to the hospital for treatment. She is now in DSS care.
