SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Prosecutors say a San Francisco Bay Area man was very tired and mistakenly believed he had dropped his infant son off at a babysitter's home when he left the boy in the back of his hot car all day.

The boy died of heat stoke. Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen announced on Monday that his office will not file criminal charges against the dad.

Rosen said a review of the April incident concluded that the death was not the result of negligence, but an error by a normally conscientious father.

The man parked the car with his 9-month-old son, Giovanni Alonzo Hernandez, in the back on a San Jose street and then left for work. The boy was discovered when his father returned more than nine hours later.
