Unidentified parents lost their 3-year-old son in Dallas on Sunday after they forgot him inside the car in a church parking lot during a triple-digit heat wave, police said.
They went inside without noticing that the child was still in the car, as children and adults are usually separated during bible study, which takes some 40 minutes, Fox 4 reported.
The parents, who have not been named, grew concerned when their four other children went into the church after Sunday school except their 3-year-old boy.
The father checked the parking lot and found the toddler unresponsive inside the family's Honda Pilot. The weather at that point was some 98 degrees. He ran inside with the child in his arms and, having trouble speaking English, asked another churchgoer to call 911.
It is unclear if the parents will be charged in the boy's death.
