HELOTES, Texas (AP) – A 7-month-old boy has died after being left in a hot car in a San Antonio-area department store parking lot.
The incident was reported shortly after 3 p.m. Friday at a WalMart parking lot in Helotes (hel-OH’-tis), a San Antonio suburb.
Helotes police Capt. Anthony Burges says the child’s father is employed at the store and told officers that he forgot to drop the child off at day care before going to work about 6:15 a.m. When he got off work about 3 p.m., he found his child dead. The father was taken to a hospital after reporting chest pains.
No charges have been filed.
Temperatures in the area hovered around 100 degrees in the area much of the afternoon.
