Toddler found dead in vehicle at Vaudreuil-Dorion senior's home


A two-year-old boy was found dead in a vehicle Friday afternoon in the parking lot of a senior's home in Vaudreuil-Dorion, a suburb of Greater Montreal.

He appeared to have been in the vehicle for several hours before first responders arrived, according to Quebec provincial police (SQ). 

Police said it's possible the boy died because of the heat.
