Investigators say a 2-year-old

Massachusetts boy died from strangulation when he became entangled

the boy apparently stood up and became entangled in netting over

the top of the crib. He says the boy, identified as Noah Thompson,

was discovered Saturday morning at a home in the island community

of Vinalhaven.

McCausland says the boy and his parents, Mark Thompson and Lisa

Rosen of Harvard, Mass., were visiting Vinalhaven for the Christmas

children under 3.
