PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5/AP) -

A 12-year-old boy who died Friday after collapsing on a hike had 2 liters of water with him, authorities said.

Police have identified him as Cody Flom.

Cody was hiking with an adult male late in the afternoon on the "Sidewinder Trail" near 19th Avenue and Dove Valley in north Phoenix. 

He reportedly passed out due to the extreme temperatures.

According to the National Weather Service, Phoenix reached 100 degrees by 10 a.m. on Friday and hit a high of 112 just after 5:30 p.m.

The boy's death comes in the middle of a summer that has yielded several heat-related deaths across Arizona.

The adult attempted to carry him off the trail but could not, police said. The man then tried to use his cell phone to call for help but the phone did not work. He then left Cody and ran for assistance, police said. 

Rescue crews brought him down the mountain and into an ambulance where paramedics tried to stabilize him.

Cody was airlifted to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
