SMYRNA, TN (WSMV) -

A terrible accident that took the life of an 11-year-old boy is bringing the community together in Smyrna.

Hayden Alexander died on Tuesday after falling out of a tree house in his own backyard, according to a memorial website.

Family members needed $15,000 to help pay for the child's funeral, and the response has been overwhelming.

In just one day, more than 250 people had donated, surpassing the family's goal by more than $700.

Hayden's funeral will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
