Toddler dies in hot car


A 2-year-old girl has died after being found unresponsive in a vehicle outside of her Crittenden, Kentucky home Saturday evening.

 Neighbors said they made the terrifying discovery, and rushed to pull the toddler from the vehicle.

 “When I picked her up she was so hot I almost had to put her back down but I got her out, try to get some air,” neighbor Eric Davis said.

 Davis lives across the street and said he rushed to try and give the 2-year-old CPR. 

 “I was trying to hit her on chest, feel if she had a pulse or not, but she wasn’t, she was pretty much stiff as a rock and I knew she was gone from there so I just kind of held her tight until EMS got here,” Davis said.

 An investigation is underway to determine how the toddler ended up in the hot car, and how long she was there before she was discovered.
