A ONE-year-old boy died after becoming trapped inside a BMW for two hours while it was parked outside his family home in searing heat.
Khayden Saint Sauveur may have been trapped in the auto for hours outside his home before his family found him, Delray Beach police said. First responders took the boy to Bethesda Hospital.
According to Delray Beach Police, the child was playing with friends when he somehow ended up inside the sweltering vehicle, Saturday.
In an interview, Carly Saint Saveur, the boy's uncle, said: "It's tragic".
Because the front doors were unlocked, officers were able to open the door and pull him out of the vehicle. "I don't know why this happened". Neighbors said he was a happy child.
When officers arrived, they immediately began performing CPR. 'I'm scared for him'.
"Right now Delray Beach Police detectives are investigating to try to determine exactly what happened that led to this child being left in this vehicle", said Delray Beach Police spokesperson Dani Moschella. According to reports, Florida warmed up to a high of 32 degrees on Saturday.
Investigators said they are still examining evidence and have yet to reach a definitive conclusion.
Carly Saint Sauveur, the boy's uncle, told The Sun Sentinel the auto belonged to Khayden's father, Action Saint Sauveur, and that it was parked in the driveway with a dead battery.
'He was always a jumpy little boy, ' Anderson Exantus, 19, said.
