A 1-year-old baby boy who was found inside of a hot car parked outside a home in Delray Beach, was pronounced dead on Saturday afternoon.

Delray Beach Police responded to the scene on NW Fifth Street, near Military Trail and Lake Ida Road, shortly after 3:15 p.m.

The boy was found inside a BMW.

Police performed CPR and the boy was transported to Bethesda Memorial Hospital by Delray Beach Fire Rescue where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Dani Moschella, public information officer for DPBD, says that officers are continuing to investigate this incident. For now, Police say it appears to be an accident.

Officers say that the boy somehow gained access to the car while playing with other children at the home.

“Make sure any vehicle in your driveway is locked, that little kids can’t get the keys,” Moschella said. “The parents may not even know [a child is] missing.”

Police say that the child may have been inside the car for up to two hours. They also mentioned that a car sitting out in this type of heat may reach 150 degrees in just a matter of minutes.
