LEAGUE CITY (September 6, 2013)--A 6-month-old Texas girl died after she spent the day in the back seat of her father's hot car.
Police in League City, 25 miles southeast of Houston, say the man found his infant daughter dead in the car after he drove to a daycare center to pick her up and found she wasn't there.
The man took his older children to school Wednesday morning and planned to take his infant daughter to daycare, Officer Reagan Pena said.
He went home to get his work vehicle, however, and forgot the infant was in his personal car.
When he went to pick up the child just after 5 p.m., the daycare center staff said she was never dropped off Wednesday morning.
High temperatures were in low 90s in the area Wednesday.
