Ala. baby fights for life after being left in hot car

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Police say a baby in Alabama is fighting for her life after being found unconscious in a hot car in Birmingham.

Birmingham police Lt. Sean Edwards says the 1-year-old girl was found Thursday afternoon after being left in the car in downtown Birmingham.

Edwards says it appears that the girl’s father dropped the mother off at work Thursday morning and then went on to his office where the baby was left in the car seat. Edwards says the parents, whose names weren’t released, are extremely shaken.

Edwards says he witnessed 12 medical professionals working on the girl at Children’s of Alabama hospital. He says the girl’s survival is the priority, and detectives will interview both parents later.

No criminal charges have been filed.
