A toddler has died after being left in a hot car for up to five hours in Texas, say police.

By the time help arrived, Kingston Jackson, who was about to turn 2, was unresponsive.

Police believe that the boy’s death may have been just a terrible accident.

One family member thought the other family member was taking the child out of the vehicle,” Burleson Police Sgt. Jae Berg said “When they got back in the vehicle and went home, they discovered the child was still in the vehicle.”

The station reports that temperatures reached 82 degrees in Burleson on Friday.

Even if it’s 60, 70, 80 degrees outside, doesn’t mean the interior of the vehicle can’t get into well over 100 degrees,” Berg said.

He told the station the parents were “quite hysterical as you can imagine.”

Neighbors who live at the Crestmoor Park South Apartments watched emergency crews try to revive the boy.

He was just a normal little boy,” resident Britany Ernst said “He was so tiny and cute, and adorable.”
