A 3-year-old Missouri girl died after being found lifeless in a heated automobile

Authorities say a 3-year-old Missouri child died after being discovered motionless in a hot car parked outside her house.

On Friday, when the youngster was found in the SUV, the temperature was in the 90s, according to Carthage police lieutenant Eric Miller. She was transported to a hospital in neighboring Joplin before being airlifted to a hospital in Springfield, where she passed away on Saturday.

 

Bill Hawkins, chief of police in Carthage, told the Springfield News-Leader that detectives believe the youngster was in the vehicle for around one hour when a family member discovered her. According to the publication, Hawkins said that police think the youngster went into the vehicle on her own, but the investigation is continuing.

 

 

There have been no arrests, and the girl’s identity was not immediately made public.

 

The girl’s death follows the summer’s tragic trend in the United States.

 

A 3-month-old infant died last week after being left in a hot vehicle in Washington, D.C.

 

A 3-year-old boy died in July after being left in a vehicle outside a preschool in South Florida, and a 1-year-old girl died in Georgia after being left in a hot car for four hours.

 

A Virginia father committed himself in June after leaving his 18-month-old kid in a hot vehicle for several hours.

 

A 5-year-old kid died in a vehicle in Houston, Texas, during triple-digit temperatures in June. The circumstances surrounding the death of a 3-year-old child in June seemed to be comparable.

 

The Weather Channel meteorologist Mike Bettes told “CBS Evening News” host and managing editor Norah O’Donnell that if the temperature outside is 100 degrees, the temperature inside a vehicle will rise to 119 degrees within 10 minutes. After thirty minutes, the interior temperature would reach 134 degrees, which is “unsurvivable for a little kid in a car seat.”
