HURRICANE — An 11-month-old girl died Friday afternoon despite efforts to save her after she had been left in a vehicle in Hurricane City and was found not breathing. According to accuweather.com, outside temperatures from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. ranged between 85-92 degrees.

At approximately 1:07 p.m., police officers and emergency medical service personnel were dispatched to the area of 50 E. 480 North in Hurricane after a report was received by St. George Communications Center that an infant had been left in a vehicle and was unresponsive, Hurricane Police Sgt. Brandon Buell said in a statement released Friday.

Upon arrival, responders found that the infant was not breathing, and CPR was being performed, Buell said in his statement. Paramedics arrived on scene and tended to the infant, who was then transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center by Life Flight medical helicopter in extreme critical condition.

“Detectives have conducted several interviews and have determined that the girl had been left in a vehicle; inside her car seat for a substantial period of time, with the vehicle not running,” Buell said in a second statement released Friday. “This situation did involve a family member.”

The Medical Examiner’s Office will be conducting an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

“We are saddened at the death of this infant child and our condolences go out to the family,” Buell said in his second statement.

This is a developing report based upon preliminary reports from authorities responding to the incident. The investigation is active and ongoing.

    With all the warnings lately, this is totally inexcusable!

    So sad, this should NEVER happen and it always does, I am confused it sounds like it happened today then it says that a second statement was released Monday? poor little angel.

    Why do people continue to be so …* stupid about this….how many children will have to die this way for people to learn!! This is just so very, very sad and senseless…. 🙁

    So are charges going to be pressed? Because they should be. There’s no reason a child should be left inside a vehicle.

  • Bud August 1, 2014 at 5:49 pm

    REALLY?! How can this tragedy continue to occur? The warnings about leaving an infant or a pet, for that matter, in a hot car are, a daily, continuous thing. How can you be so irresponsible? We are responsible for these little children. Be the adult. Act responsibly . Don’t endanger your child! Heed the warnings. The dangers, as this story tragically points out are real.

  • jan August 1, 2014 at 5:49 pm

    How much effort has to be put out there to educate people regarding the danger of leaving a child in a car. How much common sense does it take to know a car quickly becomes an oven. This is senseless, and horrific to think of how this child must have suffered. Just ignorant and aweful. So many ways to avoid this. There are no words.

      You’re perfect?! It’s not stupidity -it’s an accident. There are all types of accidents in this world, and many are very tragic. You can not judge these people. “Shame on You”

      • Jane doe August 2, 2014 at 3:51 am

        I don’t think they said they were perfect. They were simply executing their first amendment right of free speech… as you were. You don’t know if it was an “accident” or not, because from the article it seems the person “watching” the child wasn’t the person who alerted emergency personnel…. Just saying

      • Anna August 3, 2014 at 10:20 am

        No, its not an accident, its complete ignorance. Every year there are hundreds of warnings not to leave a child or an animal unattended in a car during hot weather. For that matter, you don’t EVER leave a baby in a car by themselves. What on earth could be so important that you neglect your infant ? You bet I and others can judge these people, what they did was stupid, selfish, ignorant, and criminal. You can have all the sympathy you want for these people, I will save my sympathy for the poor child that died, and my contempt for those that caused the death.

      According to one article she thought she “put her down for a nap” … Do people not check on their sleeping children anymore? same goes for the “leaving her with the neighbor” thing… Pretty sure people check in on their children. Something’s fishy.

    Was this person too busy having relationship with someone’s horses to attend to the child? Dogs & cats, maybe?

    Give a couple of these parents the death penalty and this won’t keep happening.

    • Mae August 1, 2014 at 7:24 pm

      But if it wasn’t the parents and someone else was babysitting? You can’t just assume it was and say people deserve to die. Stuff like this will stop happening if people don’t leave their children or pets in cars NOT by killing other people. You are so ridiculous.

    • sing4money August 1, 2014 at 7:52 pm

      Right Rebecca, cuz you have never made a mistake. Your an insensitive …*
      You think this mom or dad or whomever did this intentionally? You need to go to church and learn how chiristians behave. You should be ashamed of yourself. I bet if this happened to your son or daughter you wouldn’t be spouting off your red headed clown mouth. God forgive you!!

      People are fallible, even to this degree. People get distracted, they get busy, they get caught up in other things and things happen. I hope that one day you won’t make a mistake that will have other calling for your death to “keep it from happening” again. (But, since you’re judging these parents, I’m assuming you’re perfect.) Thank heaven there is a merciful God who will judge our hearts and not a heartless woman who knows nothing of the parents and all they are going through. God bless you and keep you and your family safe

      • misfit1386 August 1, 2014 at 11:08 pm

        DEATH PENALTY ALL THE WAY! ATLEAST LIFE BEHIND BARS! I cant believe you people trying to excuse it because someone was distracted and personally I think it was intentional and they deserve premeditated manslaughter. RIDE THE LIGHTING! This baby suffered a horrible death and deserves justice. If you think youre to distracted to care for another human beings life that you are responsible for then you should give your kids to DCFS and let them find someone who can be responsible. MAE, SING4MONEY, and HJ You all deserve blanket parties. Who ever did this deserves the maximum penalty by law and I hope they go to prison and I hope other prisoners know what they did and remind this person everyday. THIS IS … AND THERES NO EXCUSE! IF I FIND A CHILD OR PET STUCK IN A CAR IN THIS HEAT I WILL FREE THEM AND TURN THEM OVER TO SOMEONE WHO WILL CARE FOR THEM AND I WILL COME BACK AND KICK YOUR …!

      • Sweet Jude August 2, 2014 at 10:08 pm

        I agree with Rebecca wholeheartedly. Death penalty is the only thing left to wake people up and remind them that their duty towards others is priceless. Nothing else really matters. It is the way we set our priorities that gets us into trouble and eventually tragedy. Foolishness would never exist if we only used our brains.

      • Anna August 3, 2014 at 10:23 am

        Stupid is as stupid does. You think that leaving a child alone in a car in hot weather is a smart thing to do ? A mistake is “oops I burned the toast”, not “oops I killed a baby”.

  • Dee August 1, 2014 at 8:49 pm

    How on earth does one “forget” a baby in the car (or even a pet)? I can see forgetting momentarily and maybe getting halfway across the parking lot before you remember you left someone in the backseat, but all day??? Really??? Come on folks, get your head out of your a**, or better yet, get off the damn telephone!

    • hj August 1, 2014 at 9:51 pm

      How do you know they were on the phone?! Maybe they were taking care of other children, bringing in groceries, getting things ready for lunch -I’m a mom and things get hectic really fast. I’m sure this mother is asking herself “how on earth did I forget my baby?!” I’m sure no one thinks they could possibly ever do that -BUT IT HAS BEEN HAPPENING FOR YEARS AND YEARS to thousands of people, so one day IT COULD BE YOU. Obviously, people CAN and DO forget the most precious things in their lives. It happens! This poor family.

      • Dee August 2, 2014 at 8:43 am

        I said “get off of the telephone” because, look around – so many people are engrossed in their smartphones, texting, or surfing FB that they’re totally unaware of what’s going on around them. Yes, many are distracted by the stresses of life, and forget what’s in the car – I’ve forgotten THINGS many times, but no PERSON. I’m sorry, there’s just no excuse to forget a baby in the car for more than a few minutes.

        • San August 2, 2014 at 2:15 pm

          DEE…it’s nice to finally find a perfect person. How do you do! If you ‘forgot’ a baby in a car ‘for a few minutes’ that would be okay? Really? Care to tell us when you did that, so we can all judge you as a human being? Get the facts before you judge. I bet you are wrong on all levels.

      • Allie August 3, 2014 at 12:03 pm

        Babies are forgotten because the parents think there are more important things at hand. If a person is going to get pregnant and have a child, then they have to be prepared to accept the fact that the baby is going to be the MOST important thing in their life, even above their own. Phone call??? We don’t have to answer it right away, the caller can leave a message. Groceries??? They can stay in the car a few more minutes until the baby is brought in FIRST and put in a playpen. Getting lunch??? Huh? How important is getting lunch over a baby? The FIRST thing, always, on any parents mind should be the children. Everything else can wait two or three minutes. People are so disorganized today they cannot logically organize their thoughts and put their priorities in order.

    “What kind of person forgets a baby? The wealthy do, it turns out. And the poor, and the middle class. Parents of all ages and ethnicities do it. Mothers are just as likely to do it as fathers. It happens to the chronically absent-minded and to the fanatically organized, to the college-educated and to the marginally literate. In the last 10 years, it has happened to a dentist. A postal clerk. A social worker. A police officer. An accountant. A soldier. A paralegal. An electrician. A Protestant clergyman. A rabbinical student. A nurse. A construction worker. An assistant principal. It happened to a mental health counselor, a college professor and a pizza chef. It happened to a pediatrician. It happened to a rocket scientist.”

  • PatriotJane August 1, 2014 at 8:59 pm

    Why are the parents not mentioned or the “rationale” for leaving her in the car. Where is the information?

  • Motmot wrangles August 1, 2014 at 9:16 pm

    Let he who is without sin throw the first stone. To be honest this situation could have happened to me years ago. I drove right past the sitters house on my way to work with my child in the car. Lucky for me my child made noise and reminded me to go back and drop him off. I like to think I would have noticed when I got to work, but if I was running late? Who knows? My thoughts, prayers, and sympathies go out to this family who will be punishing themselves far worse than anyone else could, and far worse than nessisary.

  • Terry August 1, 2014 at 9:27 pm

    To those calling the parents stupid or calling the execution of these parents know this, you need to know what you are talking about before you make your comments. First, state law requires all infants to be in the back seat in rear facing child seats. This is where the hottest air in the car is also you cannot see an infant in a rear facing car seat looking through the mirror. This shows that rear facing car seat are not, in my opinion, as safe as we are lead to believe when it come to protecting kids from the heat of a car interior. Second, in 1991 there 1/10 the hot car child death rate then there is now. That is because all children, from infant to teen, were allowed to ride in the front. If we really want to end children dying in hot cars, then we need to stop requiring rear facing car seat and require all car seat be front facing. Finally, the two comments railing on the parent I say this, I doubt very seriously that you maintain 100% attention on your kids, if you have kids. I guarantee that you have taken your eyes of your infants for a few seconds think nothing will happen. You’re wrong, because it only takes a few seconds for a young child or infant to get into serious trouble. That being said this was a mistake and one these parents will have to live with for the rest of their lives, unfortunately. So to those sinfully judgmental people calling these parents evil here is a quote for you,” Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” -Jesus.

  • Jen August 1, 2014 at 9:50 pm

    I honestly can’t believe the vicious hateful comments on here left by some very insensitive people. What that family member will be dealing with is far worse than the death penalty. Please don’t judge others. It’s obvious you haven’t been in their shoes. My heart and prayers go out to this family during such a horrible tragedy.

  • Voice of Reason August 1, 2014 at 10:19 pm

    To those calling for understanding and “know what you’re talking about”, you’re right. Whomever left the child in the car does not deserve the death penalty (unless they intentionally left the kid in there, in which case all bets are off). They do however deserve to be brought up on (at the very least) manslaughter charges. Utah state code describe it this way “76-5-205. Manslaughter.
    (1) Criminal homicide constitutes manslaughter if the actor:
    (a) recklessly causes the death of another;”
    Leaving a child in the car is reckless. Murder charges could also be appropriate as Utah code (76-5-203) describes murder being applicable in cases involving child abuse, which leaving a child trapped in a car clearly is. All in all, it’s a horrible tragedy. One that has changed this family forever.

    If people when you talk it sucks having so many babies maybe they could stop killing their children. Disgusting it was the number one reason I moved out of Utah all the child-abuse and torturre. People are on so much pain medication they can’t remember how many children they have…..

    I wish I could say I am sorry for the parents/that family member loss but I am not. I am only sorry for the one’s who were not there. That person should have known better. Especially being a family member/parent. There have been warnings long before the summer heat came about not locking dogs or infants in the car. So WHY be stupid and do it especially after all the warning signs. I only wish I was there and saw the infant. Just so I could break the … window and save her from her short life.

  • Don't call Carelessness an "Accident" August 2, 2014 at 6:17 am

    There are rarely things that can really be classified as “accidents.” Most accidents result from simple carelessness. If you are a mother and your life “gets really hectic fast” then you need to figure out a way to remind yourself of the most important thing, your child. The same way we get in the habit of checking for our keys or cellphone, find a way to remind yourself. I double check the gate so my dogs don’t get out. Why can’t people with much more responsibility double check on their kids?

    • Reader August 3, 2014 at 11:26 am

      They report names of significant events even when charges are not filed.
      She decided to leave her baby in the hot car so she could ‘just run in and go in to the bathroom’. Then ‘a significant amount of time later’, she walks out to ‘discover’ the baby in the car?
      Excuse me, but if a parent ‘forgot’ to put medication away and a kind took them and died- charges would be filed, even if it was an ‘accident’. If a mother left her kids unattended in a vehicle in a parking lot, charges would be filed. When a death like this is involved, there should be charges filed.
      If there are not charges brought against this ‘good mother’, then yes, the good-ol-boy system is at work in Hurricane.

      • Andy August 3, 2014 at 5:04 pm

        I think your reply might be in the wrong place. You are arguing with most people who agree with you. It seems most of the commenters think that though this is tragic and she’ll have to live with this grief, charges should be filed.

        • READER August 4, 2014 at 11:38 am

          Yes my comment is in the wrong place. It seems this ‘reputable’ news source decided to censor the original comment string. Interesting.
          There was nothing too controversial in my original comment, either, or in the replies to my comment.
          I did mention that the original lack of a published name or charges being filed indicated that the family had local political or high-profile business connections.
          If this news source is in the habit of censoring comments, it reduces it’s integrity and will fall under the “local tabloid” category.

  • Sickened beyond words August 2, 2014 at 6:40 am

    I dont think anyone is saying they are perfect. It is just imcomprehensible to some of us. No matter what was
    going on or how tired and distracted some of get,forgetting our child has never happened. Not even for a split second. It feels like you are saying “So what if I killed a child, youre not perfect either”……It is quite angering. I just always think of the amount of torture that these tiny souls have to endure. It is absolutely sickening. How can people whine about their spouses forgetting birthdays or anniversaries? People are hurt immensely by thoshe things….Think of how a child is feeling being lierally cooked to death. What goes thru their minds? Can you imagine how scared and hurt they are? Put yourselves into the shoes of these little children and realize how trivial and ridiculous all this fighting between us is. Be glad you are alive. Love instead of hate. There is too much hate in this world as it is.

    I hope I am on the jury. Eye for an eye. You tortured a child that was in no way able to help itself. You are careless and should be put to death the same way. Accident bleeding heart whatever you took a life of a child. Stand up society loose the bleeding heart crap and come together to force people to be responsible at the hands of the jury to fine people guilty.

Y tienen que ser juzgados como descuidos y no ser justificados bajo ninguna circunstancia . Y digo ser juzgados bajo los ojos de la ley no nosotros. Nosotros solo opinamos

  • Rick August 2, 2014 at 12:39 pm

    Although this is truly a tragedy, which ever family member allowed this to happen deserves the emotional beating they will undoubtedly give themselves. With all the media coverage this sort of thing has received lately there is no excuse for leaving your child in the car. To top it off the fa!mily is begging for money on a national website for expenses!!!

  • My Evil Twin August 2, 2014 at 3:14 pm

    Don’t know if the person who left the baby in the car, was one of the child’s parents, or not. The news articles all state “family member.” And yes, whoever it was that did this, will have to live with it for the rest of their life.
    BUT, I certainly do hope the criminal charges will be filed and prosecution will be done, and justice will be served.
    The problem is one of selfishness, of being so self centered, that they cannot think of anyone but themselves, or anything but what they want right now. Nothing else matters, except ME. I. MYSELF. WANT.
    The mother of my kids left our four year old in a car, in a grocery store parking lot, a lot that had a large degree of slope to it. So the boy gets to playing behind the wheel and manages to release the parking break. The car rolls down the lot and strikes another car, causing quite a bit of damage, but no injury. THANK GOD. If that car had not been parked where it was, my car and my son would have gone off an embankment and into a creek.
    His mother’s excuse? “I was only going inside for a minute, and it was too much trouble to take him in the store.”
    R i g h t.
    Of course she is my EX-wife. . .

  • Amy Kent August 2, 2014 at 3:23 pm

    My heart goes out to the family of this poor, precious baby girl! I have a new baby and, as much as life does get hectic a lot of the time, I can’t imagine getting so caught up in life to forget the single most important thing to me. Who’s to say the responsible person forgot? What if something happened to them? It is not my place to judge, as I am not God. Nor is anyone else on here. This family will have to live with this the rest of their lives, and in the after life when we face our maker. I would NEVER forgive myself if this ever happened to me. Parents make mistakes every day, thinking it could never happen. It doesn’t make us horrible people. Just simply, NOT PERFECT! Which is why we are here on Earth! We all need to learn from this and be more aware. Let’s not let this baby’s death be in vain! Being negative and hateful WILL NOT bring her back! If it was out of neglect, she is in a far better place now. God, please take this child into your arms and comfort her!

  • Mr Marcus August 2, 2014 at 5:11 pm

    Probally … who leaves there kids in cars with out taking them into a store I remember when my kids were infants and I took them with me when I just ran into a gas station and bought a soda or something common sense people you would be surprised a lot of people in this world have none there’s no excuse for this at all none I hope u rot in hell for being born …stupid

  • Voice of reason August 2, 2014 at 10:26 pm

    And to all those donating money to the family during this tragic time, I didn’t kill my kids today, any chance you’d throw something my way?

  • Debbie August 2, 2014 at 10:52 pm

    This upsets me so much and it breaks my heart that I can not explain my emotions, all I can say is that an 11 month old child depends on a adult for there health well being and safety, how can any one not think of what could happen in a situation like this! All I can say is God took this beautiful child and said you will suffer no more, I will care for you! Bless this precious child may you rest in peace!

  • tinker toys August 3, 2014 at 11:57 am

    The culture around here breeds so many babies they rarely remember their kids names let alone if they left one in the suburban.

    • EL JEFE August 4, 2014 at 9:33 am

      I agree TINKER TOYS. I was looking for this type of comment and was getting ready to make it myself when you got it before I did. It is the practice in this culture to have as many kids as possible, that indeed, these types of problems then do occur. And it is common to see not-much-older kids taking care of younger siblings. This, due to the parents time being consumed by other kids that the older ones have to pitch in and become surrogate parents themselves. It is a wonder that these “accidents” don’t occur a lot more than they do. Such a tragedy and a shame.

  • first onscene August 4, 2014 at 12:01 pm

    Not one of these posts suggest that the writer was there.. I WAS… This is a very sad incident and the act of judgment should and needs to be reserved for the MOST qualified. Call it what you want and exercise your right to free speech but also ask yourself if you can cast the first stone. No one here knows ALL of the facts that caused this beautiful little girl’s death. With that, cast your stones.

    • READER August 4, 2014 at 3:07 pm

      The facts are:
      She ‘decided’ to park down the street.
      She ‘decided’ to run in to use the bathroom.
      She ‘decided’ to leave her baby in a closed car on a very very hot day.
      Whatever happened after that, distracted her from returning to her baby for a ‘substantial amount of time’.
      Those are facts, not opinions.
      Since she ‘decided’ to leave her baby in the car, it CANNOT be called an ‘accident’. It can and should be called ‘negligence’ and ‘child endangerment’ that resulted in a child’s ‘death’.
      To call this an accident is to downplay the real truth: a woman left a baby in a hot car, intentionally, and the baby died a horrible death.
      I don’t care how ‘nice’ the mom was, or how ‘good’ the family is/was. Negligence resulted in death. Negligence resulting in death is a crime.

      Okay lets look at the facts…………1. Helpless infant left in car on a hot day by supposedly responsible adult for substantial length of time. 2. Helpless infant dies due to hyperthermia. Any “facts” I left out ?

    People go to jail for leaving their pets in the car. Why is this woman not locked up? Is the life of an infant not worth more than the life of a dog…or a cat???
