The Kingsbury County sheriff's office says a young boy has died after being left in his car seat for several hours during hot weather.

Sheriff Kevin Scotting says the boy died about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, before paramedics arrived at the home in rural Kingsbury County. Outside temperatures on Wednesday reached 90 degrees.

Scotting says the boy's father put him in his car seat, but it wasn't clear why he was left unattended for so long.
