A two-year-old boy from Laurens County died after accidentally getting his neck stuck in a truck window, according to the Oconee County Coroner’s Office.

McCarson Allen Porter was pronounced dead at the Oconee Memorial Hospital at 7:05 p.m. on Wednesday.

The coroner’s office confirmed that the boy was with his dad at a job site on Anderson Road when the incident occurred.

The coroner’s office says that the dad started his truck, which was described as a four-door 2003 Ford F-350, to warm it up as he and his son were about to leave the job site.

The Father then got back out of the truck to get some of his remaining tools.

When the Father returned a few minutes later, he found his son lifeless, with his neck stuck between the window and window frame of the rear driver-side door.

The truck had power windows which are operated with “rocker-type” switches, the coroner says.

The Father took his son to the CVS Pharmacy on Ingles Place in Seneca to get medical attention.

EMS then responded and the child was taken to the hospital where he later died.

The child’s death has been ruled accidental.

The incident is still however being investigated by the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office, Seneca Police Department, and SLED Special Victims Unit.


A Group chat between friends on Facebook has gone viral and has been shared over 30,000 times.

Harriet Brookes turned people’s attention to pictures of brown spots on her eye and leg as evidence she is the long-lost child who vanished in 2007.

Posting screenshots from Wikipedia as well as pictures of the little girl, she said that, like Maddie, she had a brown spot on her iris.

She said to her friends: “Right guys. I don’t usually believe in conspiracy theories but honestly I think I’m Madeleine McCann.”

One responded: “I f***ing give up.”

The university student then posted a picture of her eye and leg calling them “Exhibit A” and “Exhibit B”

Another friend then responded with several crying emojis before Harriet, from Manchester, added: “I’m Madeleine McCann and I don’t know what to do with myself.”

Screenshots of the group chat were later posted on Twitter by her friend Elizabeth with the caption, “Close the door am out”.

The post has been retweeted  over 30,000 times so far but there is a strong reason to suspect the jesting student might not be the person she claims.

Maddie disappeared while on a family holiday in Portugal in 2007 when she was just three-years-old.

It means that she would be 14 now and, unlike Harriet, would still be in secondary school.

In September of this year it was announced that the police team investigating the case had been given an extra £154,000 in funding to continue.

The money means that the decade-long search can continue until at least March next year.
