Dallas police said that the father, who was not identified, realized that his 2-year-old son was missing after 45 minutes at the church.

He ran outside to the parking lot of the Rehoboth Praise Assembly, where he found his son unresponsive. Paramedics were called to the scene, and the boy was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The mother of the boy was in church with her four other children on Sunday afternoon. The boy was identified as Sang Burmese.
