Law enforcement say that a tragedy has occurred in Alabama after a three year old child was found deceased after being left inside of a hot car.
According to Fairfield Police Chief Nick Dyer, the child's grandmother had left the boy inside the vehicle when she went into work at the Miles College Campus.
At around 4 PM today the child was found unresponsive inside of the car, where he was then rushed to Children's of Alabama and later pronounced dead.
Chief Dyer said it appeared the child has been in the car for the entirety of the day whilst his grandmother was working.
The case will now go on to the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office which will then come to the determination as to whether or not charges will be filed in the case.
The grandmother's name has not yet been released nor has her side of the story as to whether or not she simply forgot or it was intentional.
"It's a tragedy and my thoughts and prayers are with the family,'' the Chief said.
Sadly enough http://noheatstroke.org/ <a href="https://google.com">according to the nonprofit No Heatstroke organization,</a> since the year 1998, 738 total children have died as a result of heatstroke in vehicles.
Those numbers have been increased in the United States so far this year which is also tragic, with 38 total children having died across the United States, including three in Alabama alone.
