Kentucky Child Killed in Heat

The heat continues to scorch most of South Central Kentucky.

The temperatures are supposed to rise to nearly triple digits, making it the hottest we've seen in three years.

One small Kentucky town has already suffered a loss due to the heat.

A three-year-old boy died in a hot vehicle.

State Police received a call to a residence in Rockcastle County.

The young boy's mother found the three-year-old locked inside her car.

According to the coroner, the boy appeared to have been in the car for several hours.

It's believed he crawled inside while playing outside his family's home, and accidentally locked himself inside.

An autopsy will be conducted in Frankfort.
