Forest rangers, alerted by a family member, tried to pull the boy out from under a mountain of about 6 1/2 feet (2 meters) of sand.

The boy, identified as Ian Spendlove, was from Santa Clara, a small town about 65 miles from the state park.

The guards assure that the collapse was very fast and they do not know how long the minor was buried.

Devan Chavez, a spokesman for the parks agency, said he was not aware of any similar incidents there, but recommended precautionary measures: “Always play with a partner or someone who can help you or go get help.

And always tell someone who is far from the area so they know where you are going and what your plan is.”

In 2012, a teenager died after becoming trapped under a sand dune in Snow Canyon State Park, 50 miles to the northwest.

In 2014, a 9-year-old girl died on a beach in Oregon and a man in California in sand-pit collapses.
