AUSTIN, Texas – A 10-month-old baby boy is dead after being left alone in a hot car at a popular restaurant.

Authorities say the baby was found unconscious and not breathing inside an unlocked car that was parked outside of a Waffle House in Austin.

Police told KXAN that employees spotted the child and were able to get him out before they arrived.

Investigators say the car was not running, the windows were rolled up and the boy was in the back seat.

“With the heat like it is, going through this heat wave, it only takes the temperature in a car 10 minutes to rise 20 to 30 degrees,” said Cpl. Chad Martinka, with the Austin Police Department.

So far, no arrests have been made.
