BOISE – A 2-month-old child died in a hot car in Boise Wednesday.

Ada County authorities said the infant was left in the vehicle outside the mother’s work nearly all day. Boise reached temperatures of 106 degrees Wednesday.

Police have not released the name of the woman or the infant. They said the mother apparently was driving to the infant's day care, but was distracted and went to work for the day. According to police, the mother also claimed she thought she dropped the child off at daycare, but did not.

The mother discovered the child at about 5:30 p.m. and took it to St. Luke’s Meridian Medical Center.

Boise Police Department spokeswoman Deanna Lokker said it appeared the infant died before reaching the hospital.

Lokker added it was not clear whether charges will be filed.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
