Baby Dies After Being Left in Hot Car in Kansas

KSAL StaffJuly 25, 2014

Police have arrested the foster parent of a 10-month-old girl who died after being left inside a hot car in Wichita.

Lt. Todd Ojile said Friday the 29-year-old man was booked on suspicion of aggravated endangerment but has not been charged.

Ojile says the man had “somehow forgotten” leaving the girl in the back seat after picking her up from the baby sitter late Thursday afternoon. He went inside the house with a 5-year-old child but left the baby strapped in the car seat outside.

No charges are expected against the other foster parent, a 26-year-old man who was inside the house.

Ojile says they didn’t remember the child was outside until something on television jogged their memories. The girl had been in the car for about 2 hours.
