An infant dies after her father forgot her in the car
A child reportedly died in Virginia on Friday after her father abandoned her in a hot SUV for a long period of time.
Fairfax County police said in a report that they and the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department had answered to a stay in Springfield after reporting a child who was not responding to a car. The eleven-year-old was taken to hospital, where she was declared dead.
The father is said to have left his daughter in the back seat of an SUV parked in his Springfield home. Police said he “unintentionally left” his daughter in the car while he was using another car to carry out the works.
The father realizes about the kid when he reached kindergarten
“After coming back to home, he drove the SUV to kindergarten home to pick up another child when he realized that the 11-month-old was still in the back seat,” police wrote.
Authorities have not identified the deceased’s name, and it is unclear how long she stayed in the car
The coroner is currently confirming the cause of death. Fairfax County police said they did not expect criminal charges to be brought in this case.
According to No Heat Stroke, the eleven-year-old is the sixth child to die in a hot car this year. In 2019, 52 children died from a Sunstorm on vehicles.
