Student dies after playground injury at Marin County elementary school

A 7-year-old boy died Thursday after being hit by a rolling schoolyard fence that came off its track at the private Mark Day School in San Rafael, police said.

The fence is used to allow vehicles in and out of the schoolyard, near a large blacktop play area, said San Rafael police Lt. Dan Fink.

The incident appears to have been an accident. The exact circumstances are not yet known and under investigation, Fink said.

“What we’re looking at is the how and why this happened,” Fink said, “so that we can prevent anything like this from happening again.”

The incident was reported at 12:21 p.m. on the campus at 39 Trellis Drive, Fink said.

Members of the staff who witnessed the incident immediately called 911 and provided care to the student, school officials said.
