    Zachary Elshaarawy, a five-year old whose disappearance in Burleson, Texas was reported within 15 minutes, died Sunday after being found in a hot car.

    The search for Zachary, who had autism, began just a quarter of an hour after his grandmother noticed he'd disappeared but the temperature was hitting 100 degrees at the time. He was found in a rear seat of an unlocked vehicle parked outside the home and despite CPR and treatment in the hospital,he could not be saved.

    His distraught father Darek, who was in the backyard building a swing for Zachary when he went missing, said Zachary was his only child and was looking forward to his first day at school, Monday.

    I am so on my husband's case about leaving his car unlocked in the driveway! Our youngest is nine, but our 6 & 8 year old granddaughters have moved back to our little town plus there are probably 50 elementary age or younger kids living in our immediate neighborhood. You just never know what a kid will find interesting and get into.

    My kids crawled into our car playing hide and seek one time. It scared me because it was a hot day and a child could fall sleep and never wake up. I started locking the doors after that.

    I wonder if this little guy was just resting and it got too hot.
