Another young child has died after being left alone in a car. June Love Agosto, 2, died after being left strapped in her car seat, in a heated car for nearly five hours while wearing a blanket and with the windows rolled up. The girl’s body was over 107 degrees when she was found.

The tragic death occurred after the girl’s mother allegedly fell asleep after she had been drinking with a friend in a nearby vehicle. Police have questioned the mother, but no formal charges have been filed.
