A boy died after being left in a hot car in Connecticut.

WEST HAVEN, Conn. -- The investigation continued Friday into an incident in Connecticut in which a young child died and his brother was hospitalized after they were pulled from a hot car, police said.

Police responded to an apartment complex in West Haven on Treat Street around 3 p.m. Thursday for a report of an injured person.

Authorities said the children and their father, who called 911, were treated at the scene and then taken to the hospital.

The 4-year-old was pronounced dead at the hospital and his 2-year-old brother is still being treated Friday. His condition was not yet known.
