The boy, identified as 4-year-old Logan Starling, was found by a bystander unconscious and locked inside a vehicle — which was not running — at 1636 Oak Ridge Road, where Elite Preparatory Academy is located in Orlando.
The bystander then rushed the child to Orange County Fire Rescue Station 51 across the street.
According to Orange County Fire Rescue, the child has been transported to Arnold Palmer Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
"We’ve been down this road so many times before, I don’t know what else to say. We do children safety seminars. The Mayor's office, the Sheriff's office warn people. There are triggers to remember a child is in the car," said Orange County Sheriff's Office PIO Jeff Williamson.
“The last thing I want to do is add to the grief of someone who may or may not have made a mistake... but the fact of the matter is there are mechanisms to help people to remember to not leave their children in the car. It is always sad. It is always tragic,” Williamson said.
An autopsy determined Logan died of hyperthermia, and the manner of death was classified as an accident, the Medical Examiner's Office said.
