A 2-year-old girl has died after allegedly being left in a hot car for hours in Torrance, California.
June Love Agosto, 2, died at a hospital on Wednesday, Sept. 23, after she was found unconscious inside her mother’s vehicle during the early-morning hours, according to FOX 10 Phoenix.
June’s mother said she left the child in the car, alone, about 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, then got into another vehicle nearby to drink alcohol with a friend, according to the coroner’s report.
According to the coroner’s report, the mother turned on the car’s heater and placed a blanket on June lap so she wouldn’t get cold.
The mother fell asleep while drunk and woke up at about 5 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 22. She then opened her car door and found vomiting on June’s clothes and burns. June was unresponsive in her car seat.
So, the mother laid June on the lawn and sprayed her with a hose trying to revive her and cool her down, the report stated.
June then was taken to the hospital with burns to her face, chest, and arms, as well as cloudiness in her eyes during a full cardiac arrest, the report stated. “Her temperature upon arrival was 107.5 degrees.”
Although an autopsy was performed, her cause of death was yet to be determined pending the results of further forensic tests.
Investigators learned June’s mother had a history of drug abuse and lost custody of an older child six years ago due to neglect, the Norwich Bulletin reported.
No arrests have been made, according to Los Angeles County booking records.
A fund has been established a GoFundMe page to help the family with funeral expenses.
