Three-year-old Arikh Hasan died after his father left him inside his car for six hours while he went to work last Thursday.
Newaz Hasan had forgotten to drop him off at daycare.
He accidentally left him inside the vehicle while he went to work, and it reached 35 degrees Celsius.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Mr Hasan was devastated by what happened that day.
He said he put Arikh and his brother inside his Toyota Corolla before dropping his eldest son off at school.
He usually dropped Arikh off at daycare. However, since the little boy was still asleep, he forgot to drop him off.
Mr Hasan said he usually chatted with his son as they made their way to the facility, but due to the lack of noise, he was unable to hear him.
He then worked from home for several hours, and he didn’t notice Arikh until he got back to the car.
The father said he returned to the shops to get his older son, and when he saw Arikh inside the car, he immediately rushed him to a nearby shop to try and revive him.
Unfortunately, the little boy died. Mr Hasan urged other parents to always be more vigilant about their kids’ safety.
Although Mr Hasan is not charged, he reportedly cried and shouted as he tried to revive his son.
A witness named Mujammel Hossain said that the father performed CPR multiple times, but the child did not respond to the efforts.
According to the witness, he could tell that the child had already died due to the lack of a pulse.
When the paramedics arrived, Arikh was already dead. Mr Hasan was reportedly seen at the scene in tears, and he had blood running down his hands.
After realising what he did, Mr Hasan reportedly punched the window of his car
