Oregon toddler has died after fall into washing machine

The Associated Press

PORTLAND — A toddler from the Portland suburb of Hillsboro, Ore., has died, a day after he fell into a washing machine full of water.

The Multnomah County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the boy as Ollie Hebb.

The Oregonian says the 18-month-old boy, identified by the Multnomah County Medical Examiner’s Office as Ollie Hebb, died Saturday evening at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.

The boy crawled up on top of the washer Friday morning by using some type of tub that was against it, according to Hillsboro Lt. Mike Rouches. The machine was operating with its lid open.

He says the boy’s mother reportedly was reading a book in the living room when the accident happened. The child was not breathing when the woman found him in the washer about a minute later.
