A 15-year-old boy was found dead in Parmer County Wednesday night.

The Eastern New Mexico News reports the body of the boy, who is reportedly from Bailey County, was found in a cotton module off CR- BB and CR-12 around 10 p.m.

ENMN said officials have not released the boy's name but the Parmer County Sheriff's Office said he was working in a cotton field in south-central Parmer County with his parents' permission.

An autopsy is being done in Lubbock but initial findings suggest the death was accidental, according to officials. The PCSO said the boy may have fallen asleep during a break in his work.
