Meet Cristian, the 11-year-old boy who froze to death in his family's trailer while Ted Cruz's family plotted escape from their mansion to Cancun: 30 dead on Texas' sixth day of misery as state runs out of water

An 11-year-old Texas boy who was excited at seeing snow for the first time died of suspected hypothermia in his family's mobile home just hours before Ted Cruz abandoned his state at the height of the storm crisis and jetted off on a luxury holiday to Cancun.

Cristian Pavon, 11, died Tuesday after his home in Conroe lost power at the weekend and temperatures plunged to single digits.

His devastated mother Maria Elisa Pineda told the Washington Post she went to check on him as he was huddled under a pile of blankets in bed and found him unresponsive.
