VESTAVIA HILLS, Ala. (AP) — Authorities have identified a 1-year-old boy who died after being left in a hot car outside an Alabama office building last week.

AL.com reports the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office says Christian Evan Sanders died Friday after he was found inside the parked vehicle in Vestavia Hills.

The child was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The cause of death has not yet been determined, pending test results. Authorities say the boy’s father had accompanied his son to the hospital.
