5-year-old boy dies in mom’s hot car while she was preparing for his sister’s birthday

According to the report, a 5-year-old boy died of heatstroke when he was left in the back seat of his mother’s car during the sweltering Texas heat wave.

The baby, identified by the Daily Mail as Trace Means, died on Monday when Amanda Means, 36, forgot the baby in the back seat of a car outside the family’s home while preparing for the baby’s older sister’s birthday party.

That day the temperature rose to 100 degrees.

According to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, Means returned home with her two children in the back seat of her car and assumed that Trace got out of the car after seeing his sister jump out of it.

After two or three hours, she realized that Trace was missing and ran outside to find her son, still tied to the child seat in the back of the car. The mother told police that her son usually knows how to unfasten his seat belts and get out of the car, but the car he died in was rented, Gonzalez said.

She has not been charged in the tragic incident, but the sheriff’s office is still investigating.

Steve Means, the boy’s father, says he doesn’t want Trace’s mother to be prosecuted for the accident.

According to the Daily Mail, Amanda Means is currently in the process of divorcing her husband, 48-year-old Steve Means.

According to the paper, Steve Means was with his son on Father’s Day, just a day before Trace’s death. According to his lawyer, although the father is devastated by the loss of his son, he hopes that Trace’s mother will not be prosecuted for the accident.

“Steve is a tough guy. He is in tears, he is beside himself, but the last thing he wants is for Amanda to be punished. She’s been through enough already,” attorney Gary Block told the newspaper.

“He knows that she is their mother, no matter what happens, and that nothing was done on purpose. All he wants to do right now is make sure his daughter is okay and that everyone can start to heal,” he added.

According to meteorologist Ian Null, who has been tracking such deaths since 1998, Trace is the fifth U.S. child to die of heatstroke after being left in a car this year.

His death also marks the second fatality in less than a week after a 3-month-old baby died last Thursday after being left in a hot car for hours in Pennsylvania.
