A Newport father left his 6-month old infant in a vehicle for approximately two hours Friday morning.  

The infant was immediately transported to Hasbro children's hospital with a 104 temperature and was expected to be okay. Officials say the temperature inside the vehicle reached at least 108 degrees.

The father is the one who reported the incident after realizing he had left his child inside the vehicle; he says he just forgot because of a change in schedule.

The incident is under investigation, and no charges have been filed.
