Child Dies In Hot Car

A two-year-old boy is dead after being left in the back seat of a car by his great-grandparents in Springdale, Arkansas.

Police say they found the boy in his car seat without a pulse and all the car windows rolled up.

The boy was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The great-grandparents told police they had left the boy in the car for about 45 minutes, however police say according to security video, it appeared to be much longer than that.

"They thought they had been in the store for about 40 or 45 minutes. Through investigation we had found that the child had actually been left for 2 hours and 5 minutes in the car," says Lt. Kevin Lewis with the Springdale Police Department.

No charges have been filed but the county prosecutor plans to meet with detectives.
