An 11-month-old baby girl has died after being left in a car for three hours while her parents attended a Florida church service, police said.
Police in Palm Bay responded Sunday around 1 p.m. to a report of an unresponsive infant in a vehicle.
"When they arrived, they learned the infant had been left in a car for approximately three hours while the parents went to the church service," the Palm Bay Police Department said in a statement.
The infant was transported to a local hospital where she was later pronounced deceased, police said Tuesday.
No arrests have been made in the case at this time and the investigation is ongoing, police said.
"This is an unfortunate incident, and our condolences and prayers go out to the family," Palm Bay Police Chief Mario Augello said in a statement.
The temperature inside a car can exceed 115 degrees when the outside temperature is just 70 degrees, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. »
