Young boy sadly dies after playing in tumble dryer.
A 10-year-old boy has died after friends found him unresponsive in a tumble dryer during a game of hide-and-seek.
Fernando Hernandez Jr – from Houston, Texas – was playing hide-and-seek in an apartment complex on Friday when he died.
Police Detective Michael Arrington told the Houston Chronicle the boy’s friends found the 10-year-old unresponsive in the dryer.
Fernando’s devastated mum Christina Rodriguez told KTRK-TV she did not know what happened.
“I was just inside cooking and my little son came inside and told me my son was dead on the floor,” she said.
The Harris County medical examiner’s office said on Monday the boy was electrocuted.
