      Funeral for three-year-old killed by tree branch held this afternoon

      All guests were asked to come in Avengers costumes by the family.

      COLUMBIA (WACH) -- The funeral for three-year-old Jacoby Latta was held on Friday afternoon.

      All guests were asked to come in Avengers costumes by the family.

      Richland County Investigators say a tree branch fell from a tree, hitting three year old Jacoby Latta on the head at a church picnic at Irmo Community Park on Saturday.

      He later died at Palmetto Richland Memorial Hospital.

      The park was temporarily closed.

      It reopened after town leaders did a thorough investigation.
