LOS ANGELES (AP) A 5-month-old boy died after being left in an SUV parked outside the family's Southern California home, and authorities say the boy's father might have forgotten about him.

The Los Angeles Times reports the man drove home Monday with his son but left the infant in the vehicle when he went inside the house in Carson.

The father later left the house but took a different car. He called police in a panic when he realized where the boy was.

Deputies rushed to the family home and tried to save the infant, but it was too late. The child was pronounced dead at the scene.

Coroner's officials identified the baby as Seth Cayton.

No arrests have been made. An autopsy is expected later this week.
