Detectives continued Friday to investigate the case of an 8-year-old-boy found unconscious in a washing machine filled with water in his Castaic home, authorities said.

The boy remained in the hospital Friday, said Sgt. Brian Hudson, and no one has been arrested in connection with the Wednesday evening incident.

The boy's father, who had been working in the yard of their home in the 30500 block of Pansy Court while the boy's mother was at a store, pulled the boy from the machine, said officials with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The father realized his son was unresponsive and dialed 911. Deputies arrived and began CPR until fire department personnel showed up. 

Department officials said the child was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was in stable condition.

Deputies were investigating how the child ended up in the washing machine.

Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt. Brian Hudson of the sheriff's special victims bureau at (877) 710-5273.
