Aaron Tazhon Trammel was arrested over the weekend on June 16 after his son tragically passed away. The Spartanburg father has been implicated in the young boy’s death, and he is facing multiple charges including involuntary manslaughter.

The incident began when Trammel and his one-year-old son returned home in the family vehicle. The father was absent minded as he turned off the car’s engine and closed all the windows. He went inside the home and forgot his little boy inside the vehicle.

About an hour later, the father had a sudden realization that his son wasn’t in the house. While searching the home, he realized his mistake. He rushed to the family car, but his 18-month-old boy was unresponsive. He panicked and dialed 911 for immediate medical assistance. Emergency medical personnel responding to the call determined that the boy had perished. Later, the coroner’s office confirmed the child died from heat-related issues from being trapped in the vehicle.

Aaron Trammel was arrested at the scene. He faces charges including involuntary manslaughter and unlawful neglect of a child. The suspect is being detained at the Spartanburg County Jail on a $40,000 bond.

This tragedy comes on the heels of a highly publicized incident that occurred in Greenville where a young toddler perished after being trapped in a hot car. On the same day as this incident, South Carolina news stations reported on the arrest of one father who left five of his children in his car while he shopped at Walmart.
