Officials with the day care could not immediately be reached for comment.

Noah was the 24th child to die in a hot car this year in the U.S., according to national nonprofit KidsAndCars.org.

Just last week, 1-year-old twins died in New York City after their father said he accidentally left them in his car all day while he was at work.

“This is my absolute worst nightmare,” the twin’s mother said in a statement.

Hot car deaths reached a record level in the U.S. last year with at least 52 children killed, according to KidsAndCars.org.

The nonprofit is advocating for Congress to require rear occupant alarm technology in cars.
