LAS VEGAS, Nevada (ABC4 News) - A 3-year-old boy visiting Las Vegas with his family died after being left in a car at the Grandview Las Vegas Report Saturday afternoon, Las Vegas Now reports.

Officers from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department arrived just before 5 p.m. to Chase Lee of Fillmore, Utah, unconscious in a car seat with the windows rolled up. 

Officers determined the child was suffering from heat-related injuries and attempted to perform CPR. Medical responders arrived and transported the boy to the hospital where he later died.
