GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) - Investigators say the death of a 3-year-old Alabama boy who was found in a car appears to be an accident.
Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin said Monday an autopsy is being performed.
But officers don't suspect foul play was involved in the death of the child, who lived in Altoona.
The boy died Friday at a hospital in Birmingham. He was found in the car on Sept. 1.
A statement from the sheriff says the child left his home on his own and got into an unlocked car.
The mother couldn't find the boy when she awoke from a nap, prompting her to look outside.
Authorities say the woman called 911 immediately when she found her son unresponsive in the vehicle.
Police haven't released the child's name.
