BOY DIES AFTER BECOMING TRAPPED IN HOT CAR IN SYLMAR

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

SYLMAR, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A 3-year-old boy died Wednesday after he became trapped in a hot car in Sylmar, police said.

Emergency crews responded to the 14400 block of Foothill Boulevard and retrieved the child from the car around 3:30 p.m. He was transported to Olive View Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say the boy was in a yard and then climbed into an unlocked car. Details on how long the child was in the hot car alone were not immediately available.

Police say his father woke up from a nap and found the boy unresponsive.

"At the very least, this is obviously a very tragic accident and it highlights the importance again of not taking for granted where your kids are and what they might be doing," Los Angeles police Lt. Paul Vernon said.

LAPD Mission Station detectives are investigating the incident as an undetermined death. No arrests have been made.

SYLMAR - Authorities today identified a 3-year-old Sylmar boy who died after being overcome by heat after he climbed into a car parked outside his home and was unable to get out.

Vincent Quintana was discovered in the vehicle about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 14400 block of Foothill Boulevard, and he died at a hospital, according to police and the coroner’s office. An autopsy was pending.

Los Angeles police Officer Bruce Borihanh said the boy apparently had been playing in the yard, and somehow crawled into the vehicle.


The boy’s parents were the ones who called paramedics, Borihanh said. It was unclear if they will face charges in the death.

In Sylmar that day, the temperature that afternoon was in the 90s.

The boy’s death was third of its kind statewide so far this year and the 18th nationally, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

Nationally, an average of 38 children die from heat exposure in vehicles each year.
