Dad charged after son dies in hot car

ATLANTA A Georgia father was booked on murder charges Thursday after leaving his son to die in a hot car all day.

Justin Ross Harris, 34, of Marietta, Ga., went to work at around 9 a.m. Wednesday with his 22-month-old son in the back seat of his car, forgetting to drop him off at day care. As he was driving home around 4 p.m., he noticed that his son was unresponsive in his child seat.

He pulled over at a shopping center parking lot and tried to perform cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, but the child was pronounced dead at the scene.

The toddler's death was the second this week of a child in a hot car. On Monday, a 9-month-old girl died in Rockledge, Fla., after her father forgot to drop her off at her sitter's house.
