Child found dead in hot car

MOBILE, AL (WTVM) - Authorities say a 4-year-old boy was found dead inside a hot car Tuesday in Mobile, Ala.

Police were called to a mobile home park for a report of a missing boy. Before they arrived, another call came in that the boy had been found dead.

Police say it's too early to say whether charges will be filed.

They also say it appears the death was heat-related--but an autopsy will determine the exact cause of death.
