8-month-old boy found dead was left in SUV for hours.

MACEDONIA, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say an 8-month-old baby boy was found dead in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart in northeast Ohio after he was left in a car for hours. No one at the day care noticed that the 8-month-old infant was never taken out his car seat in the family SUV when the rest of his siblings were dropped off Wednesday morning.A parent or guardian who was driving the SUV earlier was supposed to drop the baby off at day care along with the family’s three other children about 8 a.m. The Medical Examiner’s Office responded to the scene at the Walmart located on Macedonia Commons Boulevard after dispatchers received a call at about 5:30 p.m. At 5:30, when the baby’s three siblings arrived home from day care without their brother, the child’s mother called his grandmother – and the police – in a panic.

That’s when the older women went outside to check her car. “There was a large crowd here before and they were shocked,” Yakopovich said, speaking from the scene. “We’re all shocked, it’s a tragedy,”
