A Bay Area family that experienced an unimaginable tragedy is opening up about their son’s death in the hopes of raising awareness for school safety.
It was just five days before Christmas 2019 when Alex Quanbeck, 7, was playing during recess at Mark Day School, a private school in San Rafael. As he was tossing a football around with friends, he saw a rolling gate was open. When he went to close it, the 400-pound chain-link gate fell and crushed him. He died at a nearby hospital.
