Police believe the interior of the car was in excess of 123 degrees when they arrived on scene, according to the affidavit.

LAKEWAY, Texas — Lakeway police have released the 9-1-1 audio recording of a boy whose mother allegedly locked him in a hot car while she was passed out "drunk" in the front seat.

"My mom is really drunk and I'm sitting in the car and it's super hot," the boy can be heard telling the dispatcher on July 21. "I'm in the car in the back seat, and she won't turn the ignition on."

With no AC and the windows up, the dispatcher tried to get the boy to convince his mother he needs some cooler air, according to the recording.

"Can you ask her nicely if she could please roll down the window because it's hot," the dispatcher tells the boy. "Can you please roll down the window," the boy tells his mother.

She's heard mumbling in the background before the boy tells the dispatcher, "She said no."
