Infant Left in Back of Dad's car, Dies of Heat 9/6/13
LEAGUE CITY, Texas - Police say a 6-month-old girl is dead after
spending the day in the back seat of her father's hot car.
Police in League City, 25 miles southeast of Houston, say the father found
the girl dead in his car when he went to a daycare center to pick her up and
found she wasn't there.
Officer Reagan Pena (PEHN'-yah) says the man took his older children to
school Wednesday morning and planned to take his infant daughter to daycare. He
went home to get his work vehicle, though, and forgot the child in his personal
car. When he went to pick up the child just after 5 p.m., the daycare center
staff said she hadn't been dropped off.
