Sheridan fire chief pulling trailer when child killed

SHERIDAN, Mich. (via WOOD TV 8) — A small community is mourning the loss of an 8-year-old boy who was killed while trick-or-treating.

Sheridan is a typical tiny town in Montcalm County, north of Ionia on M-66. At 7:20 p.m. Wednesday, the streets were filled with kids and their parents going door-to-door getting candy. Many local folks use their lawn and small farm tractors to haul kids and tired parents through the streets.

Michigan State Police say an 8-year-old boy from nearby Sidney whose mother is a teacher in town was on a flatbed trailer hauled by one such tractor when he either slipped or was pulled off when his clothing or costume became entangled in the wheels.
