HOUSTON – Houston police officers are investigating the death of a 7-month-old child found in a hot car outside a business in northwest Houston Friday night.

Officers were called to the 7900 block of Northcourt Road for a child who was not breathing.

Houston Police say the baby's father forgot him in the back seat of his car.

He told police he'd dropped off his other two children at daycare Friday morning then he went to work.

He told investigators he had forgotten his 7-month-old son Justin Huynh in his car. Justin usually gets dropped off by a babysitter, according to police.

It wasn't until the baby's mother called asking about Justin's whereabouts that the father rushed to his car.

It was 7:30 p.m.

Justin had been in the car since 9:30 that morning.
