But the Phoenix Fire Department later confirmed that it was a boy.

Authorities say a 7-month-old boy has died after being left alone in a hot auto in a northeast Phoenix neighborhood in triple-digit conditions.

Police say the boy's father did not know the child was in the auto when he drove to the church to meet the child's mother.

Phoenix police said they were called to a church around 3 p.m. Saturday with a report of an injured child.

One day earlier, on Friday, seven-month-old Zane Endress died after being left alone in a auto on the northeast side of Phoenix.

Police officials have yet to say which family member was responsible for forgetting the infant.

Phoenix Police will conduct an investigation, but initial indications are that this was accidental.

A 1-year-old boy is dead after being found in a hot vehicle in south Phoenix.

That baby has been identified as Zane Endress.

Emergency personnel were called to the scene, a residential cul-de-sac near 44th Street and Greenway Road, at around 4pm. The father apparently had forgotten the boy was in the vehicle, authorities said. No arrests have been made.
