A 13-year old boy is dead and another is injured after they were buried alive in a snow bank near Albany.

Police say the two were playing in a pile of snow dumped by public works trucks. The surviving boy told authorities he heard a truck or equipment come and the next thing he remembers it went dark. Authorities aren't sure if the two dug a snow tunnel that collapsed on them or if they were buried in snow dumped by a city snow removal dump truck.

The boys have been identified as 13-year-old Josh Demarest and 12-year-old Tyler Day. Officials are investigating how the accident happened.

Police say Josh died and Tyler was rescued.
