He and his friend were both buried in snow, and authorities are not sure if the snow fort they were in collapsed or if the plow truck buried them in snow.

Once the children were reported missing, several men began digging in the area that their sleds were found, according to WNEM. One boy was found unresponsive and died later, while the other was conscious and is now talking. The surviving child said he heard loud machinery before everything went dark. The incident, which took place in New York, is still under investigation.

Thinking back to where I grew up, where there was not much else to do besides play in massive amounts of snow in the winter. I couldn't imagine the terror of such a thing happening.
