A San Jose, California dad died after a fight with his teen daughter. Hoang Tran reportedly had a heart attack during a physical altercation with his 17-year-old daughter. The teen has now been charged and incarcerated on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter.
A verbal argument between Tran and his daughter reportedly escalated into a physical attack when the teen pushed her father to the ground. Tran reportedly suffered a heart attack on the floor and never recovered.
San Jose police were called and found the 50-year-old man unresponsive. Paramedics performed CPR at the scene, but Tran remained in critical condition.
As reported by the San Francisco Gate, Tran was transported to the San Jose Regional Medical Center. He was placed on life support upon arrival, but the father died three days later as a result of the fight with his teen daughter.
As reported by CBS News, following his death, Tran’s daughter was arrested on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter and placed in the Santa Clara Juvenile Hall. Her name and information have not been released as she is a juvenile.
Involuntary manslaughter is charged as a felony offense in the state of California. The maximum punishment includes up to four years in jail and a maximum fine of $10,000. Authorities have not stated whether they plan to charge the teen as an adult.
Police admit that the man’s death was likely an accident but hold the teen responsible for pushing her father to the floor during an argument. It is not known whether Tran suffered from a pre-existing heart condition or any other medical issue that may have led to cardiac arrest.
Tran’s family continues to mourn his passing as his daughter is detained for causing his death. Nobody expected that the dad would die as the result of an argument with his teen daughter.
