An 8-year-old baby girl died Tuesday after she was discovered in a hot car in Chesapeake, Va., according to Fox 23 News.
According to a report by New York Daily, the baby was found around 12:40 p.m. and was quickly rushed by emergency services to a nearby hospital, where she died.
The girl had been left alone for several hours, the Chesapeake Police Department said.
Police said the incident is under investigation and a cause of death has not been released.
According to the Virginian-Pilot, temperatures in Chesapeake reached the upper 90s on Tuesday.
It was at least the second hot car death of an infant this summer in Virginia. In June, an 11-month-old girl died after being “inadvertently” left in car by father, Fairfax County Police said.
