"It's horrible. I couldn't imagine," said Elizabeth Savage who lives across the street. "He got out while his grandmother was sleeping."

It's not known how long the boy was inside the car before he was found. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. We don't know whether the grandparents will face any charges. Romulus police are investigating.
