FIRESTONE, Colo. — A 3-year-old boy has died in an accidental hanging on the cords of a window blind.

 Weld County coroner investigator Corinna Pina-Belmarez said it appeared the boy was trying to look out a window Thursday when he became entangled in the cords and asphyxiated.

 Daniel David Sutton was pronounced dead at the Firestone home Thursday.

Pina-Belmarez said the boy’s mother and sister found him hanging from the window blind cords when they went into a room to wake him up from a nap. Authorities did not release the names of the parents.

 The Consumer Product Safety Commission has ordered a massive recall of window blinds, stating that 120 children have died from strangulation in the past 20 years. The Window Covering Safety Council offers free repair kits by calling 1-800-506-4636.
