Police in northeast Ohio say a snow plow driver accidentally buried a 13-year-old boy in snow Wednesday.

Barberton police and firefighters took about five minutes to dig the boy out of a pile of snow about four feet high, and he was taken to Akron Children's Hospital. Police Chief Mike Kallai says police were told the boy was well and there was no need to admit him.

He says the city snow plow driver didn't see Dylan Stavarz, who was digging in snow near his home at the end of a cul-de-sac. Another child saw what happened and ran to tell the boy's mother, who called police.
