3 Year Old dies after being left in hot car

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) -

The Forrest County sheriff is investigating the death of a 3-year-old boy who was found in a hot vehicle. Coroner Butch Benedict told a local newspaper that Cameron Shaw likely overheated in the vehicle parked at a home by U.S. Highway 49 near the Stone County and Forrest County line. Benedict says first responders couldn't find a pulse before taking the child to Stone County Hospital in Wiggins, where he died. Forrest County Sheriff Billy McGee says the death was an accident, but investigators are trying to determine whether to bring charges against the mother. He says her account of what happened left lingering questions and authorities were waiting for results of a drug test. Investigators told The Associated Press that no charges had been filed by Saturday.
