PATUXENT RIVER, Md. (WNEW/AP) — An toddler was found dead inside a car at a Naval Air Station in Maryland.

Officials say police found a 17-month-old boy unresponsive in the back of the car around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station. CPR was administered by emergency crews, but he was pronounced dead at 4:15 p.m.

The incident is under investigation by Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

NCIS spokesman Ed Buice said in an email late Wednesday that the boy was left in his car by his father, who works at the base. Buice did not know how long the boy had been in the vehicle.

Information will be updated as details become available.
