“The initial report confirmed that the mother of three children aged 5, 3 and 1 years old, respectively, drove to the daycare facility. The mother took two 5-year-olds and 3-year-olds out of the car, but left the 1-year-old child inside,” Sergeant Ben Beall said at a press conference about the incident.
“She comes home and then goes inside, then goes out to exercise and then comes back home,” Mr. Beall added.
A 1-year-old girl was left in the car by her mother from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Meanwhile, the temperature in Texas on September 9 was more than 32 degrees Celsius.
The mother said that she only realized her youngest daughter was not at the daycare facility when she went to pick up her two older children in another car. When she came to pick up her two children, she asked them where their youngest daughter was.
“The daycare has confirmed that a 1-year-old cannot be sent in,” Mr. Beall added.
The mother and daycare manager later returned to the 1-year-old girl’s home and could not find her either. When they checked the car the morning the mother was taking the children to school, they saw the victim in the back seat, according to People.
The child’s body was on the floor of the vehicle and was pronounced dead inside, police told ABC 13.
Compared to other states, Texas has the highest number of heat-related auto deaths in the United States. This year, a 1-year-old girl in Texas is the 20th child to die from being left in a car for hours, according to USA Today.
On September 1, 20-month-old twins also died after being left in a car for more than nine hours in South Carolina.
