1-year-old dies in hot truck in Nashville

The girl's parents-who adopted her-forgot about their child after the father dropped her siblings off at day care, according to Metropolitan Nashville Police.

Metro Nashville Police said the adoptive mother discovered the baby inside the truck, which was parked outside their East Nashville home.

The little girl was transported to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Authorities have not identified the girl, who was adopted, or the parents.

Police said the father flew home Wednesday night and that the couple have been cooperating with the police investigation.

In a post on Twitter Metro Nashville Police Department wrote: "One-year-old girl dies after being left in a vehicle seat all day in a pickup truck parked at the family's East Nashville home".

Jenny Barker then telephoned her husband. She was pronounced deceased upon arrival at Vanderbilt Hospital.

"She removed Katera from the pickup truck and began CPR until paramedics arrived", police said.

Matt Barker flew back to Nashville, arriving late Wednesday, police said.

According to NewsChannel5, Wednesday's high was 89 degrees, so "the interior of the truck could've easily reached between 130-170 degrees". It is unclear how long the infant stayed inside the truck.
