EDEN, Idaho (AP) -- A high school in southern Idaho has made counseling available to students after a 15-year-old in the ninth grade died over the weekend in a farming accident.

Valley High School Principal Rod Malone says students and parents were among the nearly 300 who attended a vigil for Robert Tayler Sellers, of Eden, late Sunday.

The Times-News reports that Jerome County Sheriff Doug McFall has confirmed the death was an accident. Sellers was riding on a tractor with his father Saturday when he fell off and was struck by the tractor.

The accident happened between Eden and Hazelton.
