Bradenton, Florida -- A child died after being left in a car for three hours.

Around 4:20 p.m. on June 22, deputies responded to a report of an unresponsive child at a home in Palmetto.

Reportedly, the 3-year-old had been left in a vehicle while his parents attended a funeral they were in town for. The mother and father drove in separate cars to the babysitters to drop off their children before they went to the funeral. It appears the victim was accidently left in the car while the other two children went in the residence of the babysitter. The parents left for the funeral thinking all the children were in the residence.

When they returned from the funeral hours later, they discovered the child in the vehicle and called 9-1-1. By the time EMS responded the child was dead.

The investigation continues and, at this time, no one has been charged.
