The Independence County Sheriff’s Office says it happened Sunday just outside Oil Trough, about 20 miles southeast of Batesville, Arkansas. 

Rescue crews were called out to a house on Black Land Road to free the boy from the cellar. He was airlifted to a Little Rock hospital with severe burns where he later died due to his injuries.
