The Inspector General's Office says Swain was left inside the SUV for six hours, and wasn't even found until other children were picked up later that afternoon at a nearby elementary school.

Two children told the SUV driver that the boy was in the back of the SUV. Attendants in the carpool line began performing CPR on the boy, but he died from the heat.

On Wednesday, parents were informed of the death in a letter issued by the Inspector General's office.
