Family Speaks Out About Cub Scout's Death

Beth Germano

(CBS4) GREENLAND, N.H. We're hearing from the family of a young boy, who died after falling off a float at a New Hampshire Christmas Parade.

On Monday, Thomas Fogarty's family spoke for the first time about the 9-year-old boy who was celebrating Christmas with his fellow Cub Scouts. The float -- being pulled by a trailer through downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire -- pulled Thomas Fogarty to his tragic death.

"At this time, we believe that Thomas somehow fell from the float and was run over by the trailer's double-axle wheels," said Chief Michael Magnant of the Portsmouth, New Hampshire Police Department.
