Police: Infant died after being left in hot car while dad worked

- A 7-month-old boy died after being left in a hot car outside a northwest Houston business.

Police were called Friday night from a father outside where he worked on Northcourt. He told police he discovered his child unresponsive in the back seat.

Police say the man had dropped his two other children at daycare before work, and was supposed to drop the baby at another location. Investigators say at 9:30 a.m. the man arrived at work, and the child was left in the car until his wife called asking where the baby was. Police say the baby was left in the car for about 10 hours. The father has been interviewed and released. The investigation is ongoing.
