Indiana infant dies after being left in hot car, father says

The infant was found unresponsive by the mother and emergency medical services.
NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WTHR) — An investigation is underway after a newborn died from being
left in a hot car.

Police told WAVE3 that on Monday afternoon, New Albany Emergency Services received a medical call about an unresponsive infant.

The three and a half month old was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The infant's father, Aaron Turner, said his son was with his mom and sister at the time.

The baby, Aiden, was supposed to be dropped off at day care, WAVE3 reported. Aiden's sibling had been dropped off at a separate daycare.

"I still don't understand how that happened," Turner said to WAVE3. "Obviously it happens. It just happened in my family. It doesn't get any closer to home than this."

The New Albany Police Department is investigating the child's death.
