FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. — An 11-month-old girl died Friday after her father inadvertently left her in a car for an extended amount of time while he took another vehicle to run errands, police said.
The infant was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Investigators said the father put the child in the car, then left in a different vehicle to run errands. He returned home and used the SUV to pick up another child from day care when he realized the infant was still in the car.
A medical examiner will determine the exact cause of death, investigators said.
