DENTON (1080 KRLD) - The death of a two-year-old boy in a hot van has been ruled an accident.

Following a frantic search, Sarbesh Gurung was found dead inside a van in the parking lot of his Denton apartment complex on July 3.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner has ruled that he died of hyperthermia.

Investigators say Sarbesh wandered out of his apartment and likely opened the door of an unlocked van and climbed in.

Hundreds of police and firefighters searched for him, until the van's owner made the grim discovery hours later.

No charges have been filed.
