Infant Found Dead In SUV Outside Texas High School

EL PASO (May 11, 2013)--El Paso police are investigating the death of a 5-month-old girl who was found inside an SUV parked at a high school.

Police spokesman Mike Baranyay said it wasn’t immediately certain how long the baby was in the vehicle at Riverside High School when her mother found her unresponsive late Friday afternoon.

No charges have been filed.

Police didn’t say if the mother was a school employee, a student or a visitor.

She was also taken to a hospital after she became upset and authorities were concerned about her health.

Temperatures reached the mid-70s Friday afternoon.

While that's not extremely hot, authorities say temperatures inside a closed vehicle can rise quickly and be especially dangerous for young children.
