HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a 7-month old child has died after being left in a parked vehicle outside NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, as temperatures climbed into the 90s.
NASA spokeswoman Jennifer Stanfield said preliminary reports indicate that a parent intended to drop the child off at the facility's childcare center Wednesday and instead went straight to work. Stanfield said the child's parent is a NASA employee.
Al.com reports the child was found around 4:45 p.m. Wednesday.
Stanfield said in a statement that federal authorities will investigate the death since Marshall Space Flight Center is on Redstone Arsenal, a federal installation.
The National Weather Service recorded a high temperature of 94 degrees at 3:39 p.m. Wednesday at Huntsville's airport.
