HOUSTON, Texas (CNN / KTRK) – A 10-year-old boy died after being found inside a dryer in the laundry room of an apartment complex in Houston, Texas Friday evening.

Paramedics performed CPR in an effort to revive the boy, but he was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The boy’s mother said she saw him alive and drinking water about 30 minutes before he was discovered. Police believe he was part of a group who were playing hide-and-seek at the complex.

Police also said they are currently investigating so they can definitively rule out foul play.
