An 11-month-old boy died after he and his twin sister were left for hours in a hot car at an Alabama car dealership on Friday, Sept. 27.

Police were called to Sunny King Honda in Oxford, Alabama, just before noon, and when they arrived discovered twins had been left in the car for over three hours, Oxford Police Chief Bill Partridge told NBC News.

Both were transported to the Regional Medical Center emergency room, where the boy was pronounced dead and his twin sister is said to be doing OK, according to Partridge.

The father, who works for the dealership, forgot about the children in his minivan until their mother called and asked about them, AL.com reported. The father took the twins out of the car before emergency responders came to the scene.

Calhoun County Coroner Pat Brown told  WIAT that the twins were in the car from about 8:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

According to the outlet, by the time the twins were located, the temperature was already in the mid-90s.

Police have not released the names of the children or their father.
