A ONE-year-old boy died after becoming trapped inside a BMW for two hours while it was parked outside his family home in searing heat.

He's been identified as Khayden Saint Sauveur.

Cops in Delray Beach, Florida, say Khayden Saint Saveur died after he became stuck inside the auto where temperatures are thought to have touched 65C (149F).

Police performed CPR and the child was transported to Bethesda Memorial Hospital by Delray Beach Fire Rescue. He was declared dead in hospital a short while later.

Investigators said they are still examining evidence and have yet to reach a definitive conclusion. Right now, police say it appears to be an accident. Delray Beach police said Khayden was playing with other children and may have been trapped in the vehicle for hours before the family found him.

"Always lock your vehicles if they're in the driveway", Moschella said. Moschella added that parents might not even know a child is missing. The front doors of Action Saint Saveur's auto were unlocked and it had a dead battery.

@DelrayBeachPD warn of hot vehicle dangers after this incident.

A vehicle sitting outside in the Florida heat can cause the auto to reach 150 degrees, police explained.

Police say Howell denied abusing the boy.
