Detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Special Victims Bureau are investigating the circumstances surrounding the discovery of an eight year-old boy found by his parents, unresponsive in a washing machine at their residence, located in the 30500 block of Pansy Court, Castaic on Wednesday, July 31, 2013 at approximately 7:30 PM.

The victim’s father pulled the boy from the front-loading washing machine which was filled with water. The boy’s mother had gone to the store, while his father tended to yard work. When the father realized his son was in the washing machine, he pulled the unresponsive boy from the machine and called 9-1-1.

Personnel from the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station and the Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to the location. When deputy personnel arrived, they found the child lying in front of the washing machine, unresponsive and not breathing. Deputies administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to the child until the arrival of Fire Department personnel. The child was resuscitated and transported to a local hospital. He is currently listed in stable condition with his parents by his side.

There have been no arrests in relation to the incident, but the investigation is on-going. Sergeant Brian Hudson will be available for media interviews today, Thursday, August 1, 2013, at the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station, 23740 Magic Mountain Parkway, Valencia from 5:30 PM to 7:00 p.m. Sergeant Hudson can be reached by cell phone at (562) 619-1370.

Therefore, whenever we receive new credible information that may exonerate a person, the responsibility is on us, as prosecutors, to re-examine the facts and, if appropriate, to vacate a wrongful conviction.
