NC_hotcarkid_1500x845Houston, Tex. (KPRC) — A 3-year-old boy is dead after apparently getting trapped in a hot car outside of his Houston, Texas home.

Evan Trapolino was found in the car around 2 p.m. Thursday.

“He’s a beautiful baby and kid. We have great times together all the time,” Efrain Lopez, Evan’s grandfather, said.

According to police, the boy left the house and entered the car through the front door, possibly to retrieve a toy in the backseat. When he got to the backseat, he was unable to exit the vehicle due to child-safety locks.
