Man Left in Van Dies in the Heat

By: Jeff Price and Bonnie L. Cook

"In what investigators called a tragic accident, a 23-year-old handicapped Perkiomenville man in a wheelchair died after he was mistakenly left all day in his family's van parked at their house.

The Montgomery County District Attorney's Office yesterday concluded that the man, who had cerebral palsy from birth and was in a wheelchair, died from hyperthermia, the effects of extreme heat.

The man's name was not released because police considered the case "a private family matter," said Risa Ferman, Montgomery County first assistant district attorney. No charges were filed.

Ferman said the man's family had a routine in which family members would prepare him for school each weekday, and then drive him there in a specially equipped van.

The man was helped into the van early Monday morning. But authorities said no one drove him to school that day because of a miscommunication between his mother and sister; each thought the other had taken him.

He was found late that afternoon in the van at his family's house in Perkiomenville, part of Lower Frederick Township in north-central Montgomery County.

Cerebral palsy is a chronic disorder that affects the brain's ability to control movement and posture.

Ferman said that, in times of extreme weather, the disabled are in need of special attention."
