PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Toy construction trucks are pouring into the funeral home handling arrangements for a 2-year-old boy fatally mauled by wild dogs at the Pittsburgh zoo.
The parents of Maddox Derkosh requested the toys instead of flowers because their son liked to play with trucks and share them with friends
More than 3,000 have been donated, and the funeral home says it will continue accepting them even after the boy's funeral Friday morning.
The family intends to donate the trucks to a charity that will distribute them to needy children on Christmas.
Investigations continue into the boy's death. He fell from a wooden railing overlooking the exhibit Sunday at the zoo.
