8-Year-Old Boy Found Unconscious In Washing Machine Dies

Last week, we reported on the story of an 8-year-old boy who was found unconscious inside of a water-filled washing machine by his father before being rushed to the hospital.

While it was originally reported that the child had been resuscitated and hospitalized but was still alive, it has now been confirmed that he has passed away.

Authorities are investigating the death of an 8-year-old Southern California boy who was found inside a washing machine at his home.

Authorities say the boy’s father found him head-first with his legs sticking out of a water-filled top-loader at their Castaic home last Wednesday night and pulled him out.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials say the father had been working in the yard and the boy’s mother had gone to the store.

The boy wasn’t breathing when firefighters arrived. He was resuscitated and hospitalized but died Sunday. His name wasn’t released.

Sheriff’s homicide detectives are investigating the death.

The worst ending possible to an already tragic story. May this child rest in peace.
