UPS driver, 24, collapses and dies while delivering packages in Ca heat

The father of a Southern California UPS driver is devastated after his son collapsed in his truck on a hot day in June and died — just one day after his 24th birthday, according to relatives.

Esteban Chavez Jr. was delivering packages on June 25 in Pasadena when he passed out and was discovered around 20 minutes later inside the truck, KABC reports.

Although his cause of death hasn’t been confirmed by the coroner, his family believes that heat stroke may be to blame. The week of his death, temperatures in the city had been in the high 90s.

Chavez’s family created a GoFundMe to cover memorial costs, and received more than $20,000 in donations in just six days.
