Tragedy strikes Alden family second time


The two year son of former Williamston Senior Airman Nick Alden, who was killed by a terrorist in Germany last year, tragically died Saturday when a dresser fell over and asphyxiated him, according to Anderson County Deputy Coroner Don McCown.

William John Alden was attempting to reach something on top of a dresser and ended up pinned by the dresser drawers, McCown said.

Trish Alden and her family were preparing to leave for a family vacation when the accident occurred, McCown said.
