Justin Huynh 7 month old Houston, Texas baby dies in hot car after father forgets to drop son at daycare. Grand jury to decide whether to lay charges.
Tragedy has come to the fore with the revelation that seven month old month Houston, Texas baby Justin Huynh has died after being left in a hot car.
The baby boy’s death comes after the child’s 36 year old father told of having ‘forgotten’ leaving his son in the back set of the vehicle for more than 10 hours. The boy’s dehydrated body was found circa 8pm, Friday night.
According to a report via chron, the child’s father said he had earlier dropped off his two other children at daycare that morning. From there the father ’usually’ dropped off Justin at a separate babysitter.
It wasn’t until after Justin’s mother called the father around 7.30pm enquiring about the baby boy’s whereabouts that disconcert set in.
Upon going to the family car, the father found the baby boy unresponsive.
Temperates in the vicinity on Friday were in the mid 90’s.
Responding emergency services at the father’s place of work located at 7900 block of Northcourt Road declared the baby boy dead.
Justin had been in the car since 9:30 that morning.
The father was interviewed by detectives, declining to offer further information pending further investigation. The father has since been released.
Adding, ‘It’s kind of like being in a sauna.’
HPD said the incident will likely be referred to a grand jury.
The baby boy’s death comes in the wake of two toddler children of 25 year old Texas mother, Cynthia Marie Randolph, being charged with the deaths of her two-year-old and a 16-month-old after ‘intentionally’ leaving her children in a hot car to teach them a lesson. The woman later confessed having smoked pot and then taking a nap.
To date police have not said whether they believe Justin Huynh’s father will face any charges as a community struggles to make sense of another child dying in a hot car, a trend that continues to defy logic.
