A Delray Beach, Florida, toddler died Saturday after allegedly being left in a hot auto for hours, as reported by Sun Sentinel.

'He was such an active kid.

Because the front doors were unlocked, officers were able to open the door and pull him out of the vehicle.

Khayden was rushed to Bethesda Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. According to police officers, Khayden Saint Saveur got inside the vehicle while he was outside playing with other children at the residence. Anderson Exantus, 19, is a neighbor and said he would see Khayden playing outside with his mom and siblings. Police now want to know how this could happen.

'[He] is not feeling well at all, ' Carly Saint Saveur said of his brother.

The Sun Sentinel reported the vehicle belonged to Khayden's father, Action Saint Sauveur, and that it was parked in the driveway with a dead battery. "If they're sitting in the driveway, hide the keys". The National Weather Service reported that temperatures topped 90 degrees on the day in question. Investigators are conducting an autopsy to determine his cause of death. A vehicle sitting outside in the Florida heat can cause the auto to reach 150 degrees, police explained. He described the child as being full of energy and said his parents treated the toddler well.
