http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5999647/Three-month-old-baby-boy-dies-mother-forgets-car-leaves-heat-Indiana.htmlA grieving father says his 'heart is broken' after the death of his three-month-old baby boy, who was allegedly left in a hot car for nearly an entire day by his ex-girlfriend.
Aiden Miller become the 29th child to die in a boiling vehicle so far this year in the United States when he was discovered still strapped into his infant car seat, in New Albany, southern Indiana, on Monday.
The baby's father, Aaron Turner, told WLKY: 'I don’t understand how this could happen and my heart is broken. My biggest hope is in sharing this story, another child’s life will not be lost.’
He explained that his former girlfriend said she had first dropped off their two-year-old daughter at the Kids Care Academy day care on Monday morning.
She was then scheduled to drop off the infant at a different day care.
Although that center and Aiden's day care are less than two miles apart in New Albany, she drove directly to her work, Express Care – a medical center.
The mother allegedly forgot about their son's presence in the vehicle, and he was left for hours in her vehicle in the parking lot.
When she left work at the end of the day, his ex found the three-month-old unresponsive, on the back seat. Outside, the temperatures reached about 78F (25.6C) on Monday.
Despite rushing him into the medical center, where CPR was attempted, Aiden was later pronounced dead at hospital.
