2-year-old boy found dead in parked car in Alabama


A 2-year-old boy found dead inside a car that was parked outside an Alabama daycare apparently had been in the vehicle for a long time, police said.

A relative discovered the girl inside a car at the Kids Campus in rural Blount County Tuesday afternoon, when temperatures hovered in the 90s, authorities said. The boy, whose name was not immediately released, could not be revived.

It was unclear exactly how long the boy had been inside the vehicle, but Police Chief Charles Clifton said it may have been an “extended time throughout the day.”

“I think everyone I saw on the scene has children, so it’s extremely difficult to be involved in something like that,” Clifton told reporters during a briefing.

The district attorney’s office will determine if any charges are warranted.

At least 28 children left inside vehicles have died this year in the United States, including six this month, according to a website that tracks such cases, kidsandcars.org.
