An infant in Phoenix has died after being left in a hot auto, one day after a baby boy died under similar circumstances.

She said, she had come to the church to support the family and mentioned hearing about the other baby that had died similarly on Friday.

In that case, police say Zane Endress was in the auto for "several hours" before he was found. "Everyone is cooperative", Fortune said.

Zettica Mitchell, a cousin of the baby's father, told the Arizona Republic that the death was 'shocking, devastating, just sad'.

Phoenix Police and fire brigade were called out at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the CHURCH of God in Christ after witnesses dial to 911, after some hours police and fire officials arrived and pronounced one year old and refer to the Hospital after sometime Doctor said that Josiah Riggins died.

The boy's death Friday was the first hot vehicle death in Maricopa County this summer.

Since that time, the highest number of deaths per year was in 2010, with 49 deaths. The child was under the care of his parents. "Again, look inside your vehicle before you put it in drive and before you go anywhere, so you can avoid these tragedies".
