MESA, AZ — Officials say a 7-month-old boy has died after being left inside a parked car at a Mesa mall Saturday.

At around 1:30 p.m., officers responded to the JCPenney parking lot regarding a child not breathing at Superstition Springs Center near U.S. 60 and Power Road.

First responders rushed the boy to a hospital while performing life saving measures but he did not make it.

An investigation revealed the baby was found alone in a parked car with the windows rolled up. That day's forecast high was 106 degrees.

Police say the mother discovered her son in the car after spending about two hours inside the mall.

No charges have been filed on the mother but the case remains under investigation.
