LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say a 3-year-old boy has died after climbing into a car during scorching weather.

LAPD spokesman Bruce Borihanh says the boy was playing by himself in the yard of a Sylmar home Wednesday afternoon when he climbed into the family car, was overcome by heat and couldn't get out.

His brother found the boy and police were called around 3:30 p.m. but the boy died at a hospital.

His name hasn't been released.

Temperatures in the area topped 95 degrees and authorities say it can get much hotter inside a car.

Borihanh says the boy's death appears to be a traffic accident but his parents are being interviewed and the investigation continues.
