Illinois Child Dies After Being Left In A Car In 90-Degree Weather
Posted Friday, June 21st 2013 @ 12pm

Summer has barely started and already we're seeing tragedies of this sort. An O'Fallon, Ill., toddler was reported dead today after being found inside a car, where he was left for two hours. 

The 23-month-old boy's father was reportedly loading him into the car to go to the park around 2:30 p.m. on Thursday but became distracted. 

The boy's mother returned home at 5 p.m. to find the lifeless body of her son in the car. 

Temperatures that day were in the 90s. 

The father is currently in custody for child endangerment.
