While visiting his grandparents, the young lad had been playing with his cousins ​​and family members when the drama unfolded at the house on Murphy Road, just outside Georgia’s Coolidge.

Watkins said it’s believed the little boy, originally from Jewett, Texas, was trying to hide behind the devices when he got stuck between them.

After searching for him for about five to 10 minutes, the family spotted him and immediately began CPR, WCTV reported.

Emergency services continued to perform CPR upon their arrival, the sheriff’s office added.

The little boy reacted, albeit briefly, before losing consciousness again. He was transported to an area where he was pronounced dead.

According to Watkins, the boy may have died of positional asphyxiation. There was no trauma to the little boy’s body.

The sheriff’s office confirmed that no charges have been filed against the family.

An official autopsy will be conducted on Wednesday (June 15).

Local residents have expressed their shock at the tragic news. Many have taken to social media to express their condolences.

“How tragic! I pray that the family can find some kind of peace in these unfortunate circumstances,” Kristine Miller said on Facebook.

“Breaks my heart, he probably had anxiety attacks that made it difficult for him to breathe,” Rhonda Stalvey replied. “Poor family, this must be devastating as he was only here to visit his grandparents.”

“Sincere condolences to the family here and in Texas,” commented Harriett E. Ingram.

Another user, Paul Stephanie Edenfield, said: “It breaks my heart! Kids just play and have fun.”

“Awe poor little man! My condolences to his mother and father and his family, absolutely heartbreaking,” added Collene Reynolds.

Last year, a toddler died after being found unconscious in a running washing machine.

Police officers in Christchurch, New Zealand, launched an investigation after the preschool child was found inside the washing machine that was switched on.

Police said the child’s death was not considered suspicious.

This event comes just two years after a two-year-old girl died after climbing into a clothes dryer while her mother slept.
