DAYTON, Texas - A baby in Dayton died Thursday after being left in a hot car all day.

Dayton police were called to the Kreative Kids Learning Center Thursday evening after the baby’s mother discovered his lifeless body in the back seat. Police say the mom had gone to the day care to pick her son up, not realizing she had forgotten to drop him off that morning.

He had been in the car all day.

Police are investigating the case but no charges have been filed yet. They say the family is cooperating.

The mom is an attorney for Pasadena ISD. The school district released the following statement:

"There are no words to describe how we feel about the tragedy that has taken place. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire ... family."
