A three-year-old boy in Houston has tragically passed away after he became 'trapped' in a hot car reportedly looking for his toys.


Police believe Evan Traplino climbed into the car through the front door and couldn’t get back out due to child-safety locks.


The youngster was discovered 30-45 minutes later by his family and despite performing CPR he sadly passed away. 


According to ABC News, the temperature at the time was 94°F (about 34°F).



Talking about the incident, Dr David Persse Medical Director of Houston Emergency Medical Services said: “Kids will get into a car and they'll be playing around the car and they'll accidentally lock it and the child will panic and they don't know how to unlock the car."


Houston police are currently investigating the case.
