Toddler Dies In Auto-Starting Dishwasher

‘Authorities in Arkansas said an 18-month-old boy died inside a dishwasher that turned on automatically when its door closed.

Officials are still investigating, but said the boy’s death appears to be accidental. They said the likely cause of death was heat exposure.

Authorities said the boy’s 13-year-old brother found him inside the dishwasher Wednesday. It was still running. Authorities said the toddler’s brother opened the dishwasher after noticing the child’s blanket lying on the ground on front of the appliance.

The child died before paramedics arrived.’
