WEST VALLEY CITY — A 2-year-old child is recovering in the hospital after being left in a hot car Thursday afternoon. At the time, temperatures outside were near 90 degrees.
West Valley City police were called to a home near 1460 West and 2280 South around 2:30 p.m. When they arrived, the girl was locked inside the unattended vehicle.
Initially, the child was unresponsive, but emergency responders were able to revive her and authorities said the little girl was crying when she was transported to the hospital.
The girl's parents told police they left her in the car after getting home from work because she was asleep. When they realized the mistake, they ran outside and found her unconscious.
The toddler was listed in stable condition, but was being held at the hospital for observation.
