Police investigate after infant found in car with no pulse

Associated Press

CALDWELL, Idaho – The Caldwell Police Department is investigating after a 5-month-old baby girl was found in a car without pulse.

The Idaho Statesman reports that someone called the police at about 4 p.m. Saturday to report that an infant had been left in a car and didn’t have a pulse.

Police arrived at the scene– the area of a car dealership, a tire store and other businesses – and confirmed the baby was unresponsive.

The infant was taken to a local hospital, where she was later declared dead.

Lt. Dave Wright said Sunday that the child was in the car of a male caretaker. He didn’t specify the relationship between the child and the man.

No arrests have been made.
