12-year-old Iowa football player killed after he fell off a homecoming parade float and was ran over

Kage McDonald had the dreams of playing in the NFL. The 12-year-old football player from Iowa died last week when he fell off a homecoming parade float and was accidentally ran over.

According to reports, the accident happened around 1:45 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24, as the Westwood homecoming parade. His father said his son apparently reached for a water bottle when he fell off the float.

Kage McDonald was flown to a Sioux City hospital, where he died. Kage was a wide receiver and a very solid football player in the seventh grade.

A Go Fund Me was created to help raise money for the young man’s funeral expenses. The Go Fund Me already raised 31k dollars. Please pray for the McDonald family, and his teammates.
