- Largo police have arrested a father after his son was found unresponsive in a hot trailer, and later died.

On Thursday afternoon, officers responded to Kings Manor Mobile Home Park at 1399 Belcher Road to check on the welfare of two children -- an eight-month-old boy and two-year-old girl. Both were found in the 109-degree mobile home, according to a media release.

The boy was found unresponsive due to the extreme heat, according to police. He died on scene.
