BANGS — An accident with mini-blind cords in the family’s home just west of Bangs caused the death of a 4-year-old boy Saturday evening, Sheriff Vance Hill said.
    Hill did not release the boy’s name, but numerous social media posts have identified him as Noah Lemond, the son of Everett and Tiffany Lemond.
    Deputies responded sometime after 6 p.m. to the home just west of  Bangs city limits on a report of an unresponsive child, Hill said. The boy’s mother found the boy in his bedroom with mini-blind cords wrapped around his neck, he said.
    The boy’s mother and first responders performed CPR, and the boy was taken to Brownwood Regional Medical Center, where doctors could not revive him.
    “We don’t believe this to be anything other than an accident, but we have sent the child off for an autopsy just to confirm our belief,” Hill said.
    “I want to urge everyone to cut those mini-blind cords as short as possible. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.”
    The boy is the grandson of Brownwood City Marshal Dean Kilburn.
    The community is rallying around the family.
    A bank account has been set up at TexasBank to help with funeral expenses under the name Tiffany Kilburn Lemond in memory of Noah Lemond. Blaylock Funeral Home is also taking donations for the family, and Center for Life Resources will also be taking donations, according to Facebook posts.
