AMERICAN FORK (AP) — A 9-year-old boy is dead after he was left inside a parked car by a worker at a Utah business providing services for people with developmental disabilities.

Police say the boy was in the care of Roost Services when he was left behind by a staff member on Wednesday.

The child had been left in the car for more than two hours when he was found unresponsive in the afternoon.
