Tragedy near a small town

How all too easy it is for a mistake to turn into a tragedy.

My heart goes out to the family.

A 3-year-old Guadalupe County boy, discovered dead in the family car Sunday, likely slipped away from his napping dad and climbed into the car on his own, authorities said.

The investigation isn't finished, but Sheriff Arnold Zwicke said interviews and preliminary autopsy results point toward a tragic accident.

The family home is located in a rural area between New Berlin and La Vernia.
