(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Both fathers who live in different states say they were supposed to drop their child off at day care on the way to work, but forgot.

Near Atlanta, 34-year-old Justin Harris is charged with murder and cruelty to children after police say he left his 22-month-old son in the car and went to work Wednesday.

Police say he was driving home and noticed the child, still strapped in his car seat.

Witnesses saw Harris pulled back into the mall where he works, jump out, and begin CPR on the child, but he could not be revived.

Harris is being held without bond.

Police in Florida say it's too soon to consider criminal charges against Stephen Lille.

He told police he forgot to drop off his 9-month-old girl with a babysitter Monday and went to work.

Police say she died, still in her seat, in her father's truck.

She was pronounced dead shortly after paramedics arrived.

The National Safety Council tells parents to leave something they need for work or while running errands in the back seat, as a reminder to look in the back of the vehicle.
