A New Jersey mother has been arrested after her 1-year-old daughter died from being left in hot car for over 2 hours, prosecutors said.

Chaya Shurkin, 25, was arrested on Sunday and is charged with endangering the welfare of a child, according to the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office.

The case began on May 6, when officers responded to a Lakewood home for a report of a child in distress, prosecutors said.

Shurkin's daughter, who was 21 months old, was left alone in Shurkin's car in the heat for about 2.5 hours, prosecutors said.

The temperature reached 71 degrees in nearby Trenton that day.

The officers arrived on scene and found a neighbor trying to give the baby CPR, prosecutors said. She was taken to a hospital where she died.

"The investigation determined that the act of leaving the child in the car unattended for such a long period of time was the cause and manner of the child's death," Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley Billhimer said in a statement on Monday.

A law enforcement source told NBC 4 that Shurkin brought the girl home after she was taken to day care, but she refused to go inside, and “there was a miscommunication about whether the toddler’s mother or father would bring the toddler in from the car.”

It's an excuse, a 2yo can't make that kind of decision, obviously mom and dad can't either. They can chose their clothes for the day, whether or not they like broccoli, chicken nuggets or cheese burger at McDonald's but absolutely not whether they feel like going inside or staying in the car. That's just stupid on the part of the adults.

Why does this worthless excuse for a mother have a look of pure indifference on her stupid face??? If it was truly an accident shouldn't she have bloodshot eyes from balling since she just killed her baby? I would have ran into traffic before the police arrested me if I accidentally killed my kid.

Heck, I was still picking my kid up and depositing her where she needed to be if she refused when she was 7 or 8. No excuse to pander to a toddler like that. Well, guess that's a moot point now anyway
