West Texas Toddler Dies After Being Left in Hot Car
Police in Pecos, Texas, say 17-month-old Avrian Villalobos died Tuesday after he was forgotten inside a car.
The report from KXAN says Avrian's mother had her two older children in the car with the toddler when they dropped off the husband at work.
When the family arrived home, the mother and two older children went inside and forgot Avrian in the car. By the time the mother realized what had happened, it was too late. She tried resuscitating Avrian and drove him to the hospital. The toddler was declared dead.
The two children were placed into Child Protective Services after the incident.
The National Weather Service reported temperatures in the triple-digits Tuesday.
