- The family thanked the donations and indicated that they had “more than enough” to take the child’s body to their country.
- According to relatives, the boy’s last wish was to return to his grandparents in Honduras
The family of the Hispanic boy who allegedly died of cold due to low temperatures after the severe winter storm in Texas indicated that they do not need more money to cover the expenses of repatriation of the body to Honduras.
The 11-year-old family of Cristian Pavón Pineda created a GoFundMe account with the intention of raising money to fulfill the boy’s last wish: to return to his grandparents.
The Hispanic boy’s grandparents are in Honduras and the family had requested the collaboration of the community in order to cover the costs of repatriation of the body.
“His wish was to see his grandparents again and his mother wants to fulfill that for him. Please help with whatever you can, God bless you ”, it reads in Spanish on the page of GoFundMe.
So far, they have managed to raise $ 88,000 from the initial goal of $ 5,000.
The Hispanic boy’s aunt wrote on the GoFundMe page thanking the donations and said that it was not necessary to donate more money because they already had “more than enough” to be able to take his body back to Honduras.
“Cristian will be held at the woodlands first Baptist church in The Woodlands. We want to thank you for all the help. It is no longer necessary to donate. We already have more than enough to give him the last goodbye he deserves ”.
María Elisa Pineda, Cristian Pavón’s mother told The Courier that her son dreamed of becoming a pilot one day. The woman added that Pavón loved being an older brother, Heavy News reported.
The family of the boy who died, apparently frozen in his family’s mobile home, after losing power during the winter storm that hit the state, sued utility providers in the region for $ 100 million.
The plaintiffs allege that they failed to warn people of the dangerous conditions and gave incomplete guidance to customers during the unusual extreme cold snap, according to Click 2 Houston.
Tony Buzbee’s law firm is representing the Pineda family in the lawsuit over the death of Cristian Pineda.
The day Cristian Pavón died, he had played in the snow for the first time, said his mother, María Elisa Pineda.
Investigators have said they are still trying to determine how Cristian died. Although an autopsy was performed, they are awaiting the results of other tests before determining the cause of death.
According to court documents provided by Buzbee’s law firm, Cristian Pavón’s family said they had huddled in a single room at night in an effort to keep warm.
“Common sense tells you that the weather played a role in his death,” Buzbee said. “His mother is very firm, of course he had no underlying conditions that would make him particularly vulnerable to cold weather,” Click 2 Houston reviews.
Published court documents accessed by ABC13 prove that the family and Buzbee believe those companies owe more than $ 100,000,000, plus court fees, after Cristian’s untimely death.
“And other demands will come,” Buzbee said. “These decisions, which led to death, were made on the basis of profit, not the welfare of the people. People died. ERCOT and electricity providers like Entergy must be held accountable. “
Entergy released a statement to ABC13, claiming: “We are deeply saddened by the loss of life in our community. We cannot comment due to pending litigation. “
