Eric Wilson was mowing his lawn when friends and neighbors say a gust of wind knocked down a tree branch, killing the 10-year-old boy.
It happened Sunday afternoon in Simpsonville. That's in Shelby County.
His neighbors say he was working quickly to finish the job so he could go over to a friends house for a sleepover.
And they still can't get over the fact that he just happened to be under a tree when a large gust blew through the area.
His friends will remember how polite and respectful he was, almost saying he was like a little man, but at the same time enjoyed just being a kid.
He loved all sports and had a bright future.
Now, the community is mourning this tragic loss. The family is working on the funeral arrangements.
