HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas judge pleads for immediate help in a 911 call made after he found his 18-month-old son inside a hot car.

On tapes of the call released Thursday, Garland County Circuit Judge Wade Naramore said his son was in the car too long. At one point he says, "It's too late. I think he's dead." Naramore's son died July 24 from excessive heat after being left in the car.

Calls by Naramore and his father-in-law were released Thursday under an order by a special judge who rejected the city's argument that they're exempt from the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act because they're part of an ongoing investigation.

Little Rock lawyer and blogger Matthew Campbell filed the complaint seeking the tapes.

No charges have been filed in the boy's death.
