BURLESON, Texas (AP) – Police say a North Texas toddler has died after apparently being left in the family’s car for several hours.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports officials say 1-year-old Kingston Jackson of Burleson died Friday night after being transported to a Fort Worth hospital.
A medical examiner’s report Saturday didn’t immediately list a cause or manner of death.
Burleson police spokeswoman DeAnna Phillips says the boy may have been in the car for five hours before being found around 7 p.m. Friday by his mother.
Forecasters say temperatures Friday afternoon in Burleson reached the low 80s.
