Virginia police are looking into the death of a boy found inside a dryer earlier this month, a day after his third birthday. Around 5 p.m. on Aug. 7, Chet Lloyd called 911 to report that his son, 3-year-old Brantley Lloyd, wasn’t breathing, according to The Virginian-Pilot.
Lloyd said that he woke up to find Brantley had climbed out of his crib and into a dryer. Brantley’s mother, Amanda Ray, said that the boy’s father called her to tell her to get to his house and when she arrived, police were on the scene.
Lloyd told Ray that he was sleeping and he woke up to Brantley inside of the clothes dryer. “It doesn’t make sense to me,” Ray said. “Nothing is adding up. I don’t understand how my baby was in a dryer. I don’t understand how he died.”
The incident reportedly remains under investigation.
