Baby forgotten in hot car during baptism party dies


According to the Brazoria County Sheriff's Office, a mother attending a celebration for a family member's baptism on Sunday afternoon forgot her two-month-old infant in her car. The child is believed to have been in the vehicle for a little more than an hour.

Family members called 911 and the infant was rushed to Angleton Danbury Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The mother had a total of four children in the home, ranging in age from about 11 years old to the two-month-old baby. Investigators say the mother has no criminal history, and as far as they know, no history with CPS.

An investigation is underway. The district attorney's office will consider if charges will be filed. The mother's name has not been released.
