EDMOND, Okla. (AP) — Police in Edmond, Oklahoma, are investigating the death of a 3-year-old girl who died after being left in a car for as many as six hours.
Police received a call about 6 p.m. Monday from the girl’s father, arrived on the scene and began lifesaving measures, said Edmond Police spokeswoman Emily Ward.
The child was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead, Ward said.
“His statement to us is that he has caring for five kids … and that he just didn’t realize she was in there until it’s too late,” Ward said.
No arrests have been made, but the investigation is ongoing, Ward said.
