(WHAS11) -- A Louisville father whose infant son died after being left in a hot car all day will not face charges.

Michael Lindsay was supposed to take the child to daycare on a 90 degree day in mid June, but forgot and went to work.

Eight-month-old Lincoln Lindsay was in the hot car for more than 10 hours.

After Lindsay found the child still in his car seat, he raced home hoping his wife, who is a doctor, could revive him, but she could not.

"The way he was at the scene was horribly distraut," said Dave Stenge Commonwealth's Attorney.  "I don't think anybody would have indicted that."

State law required the commonwealth's attorney's office to present the case to the grand jury.
