The 5-year-old boy from Glenview who officials said died of a traumatic head injury at a Sept. 4 wedding reception in Oak Brook has been identified.

A release Thursday from DuPage County Coroner Richard Jorgensen identified the boy as Luca Berlingerio of Glenview.


The boy died after an accident at the Drake Hotel.

Police say surveillance video from the hotel showed the child was lying across a granite-top table directly behind a sofa. He tried to slide off and grabbed an edge, which caused the table to fall on his head, according to a news release by Oak Brook police Wednesday.

Family members found the boy unresponsive and called 911. A physician who happened to be at the reception performed CPR. The boy was pronounced dead at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital.
