Dad's Worst Nightmare Becomes Reality After Discovering His 6-Year-Old Son In A Closet

A 6-year-old boy in Pennsylvania accidentally hung himself in the closet of his family’s Fayette County home in July, according to WPXI. Tristan would have turned 7-years-old only a month later.

“I just want my boy back,” tearfully said his father, Anthony Hurtt.

Hurtt says he was in the living room while his son and a 4-year-old boy were playing in the closet, which didn’t have a door. He says he was standing just feet away from where his son was when the boy was found to be hanging by the belt of a robe. Hurtt believes his son was playing around and didn’t realize he wouldn’t be able to break free. A preliminary autopsy showed that the boy died from suffocation.

“My son was my whole life,” Hurtt said. “He was a happy boy.”

Authorities say no charges have been filed in the boy’s death and that they don’t believe there was any foul play involved. The investigation, however, was still open at the time.

“Obviously, it's very emotional for all of the parts involved, including the investigators. This is not something any of us take very lightly,” Fayette County District Attorney Richard Bower said.
