Police on Sunday identified the Delray Beach child found dead in a hot auto as Khayden Saint Saveur.

Dani Moschella, public information officer for Delray Beach Police, said the child was unconscious when officers arrived and discovered the front doors of the auto were unlocked.

A little boy who would have turned two next month died on Saturday after he was found inside of a hot vehicle.

When officers arrived, they immediately began CPR, but upon arrival at the hospital, the boy was pronounced dead.

Because the front doors were unlocked, officers were able to open the door and pull him out of the vehicle. The boy died a month before his second birthday.

"It's tragic", said Carly Saint Saveur, the child's uncle.

The child's uncle, Carly Saint Saveur, claimed the vehicle was parked in the driveway with a dead battery. "If they're sitting in the driveway, hide the keys". Investigators are conducting an autopsy to determine his cause of death.

Temperatures in the Delray Beach area reportedly touched 90C in the shade on Saturday.

Carly Saint Sauveur, the boy's uncle, told The Sun Sentinel the vehicle belonged to Khayden's father, Action Saint Sauveur, and that it was parked in the driveway with a dead battery.

A auto sitting outside in the Florida heat in July can reach up to 150 degrees, according to police. The toddler was stuck inside a auto parked outside his family home.

'He was always a jumpy little boy, ' Anderson Exantus, 19, said. And his parents treated him really well'.
