SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a 16-month-old girl died after being left inside a hot vehicle in northwest Iowa's Sioux City.
The Sioux City Police Department says officers dispatched around 4 p.m. Sunday found the toddler unconscious. The National Weather Service says the temperature was 98 degrees (36.7 Celsius) at the time. She was pronounced dead later at a hospital.
It's unclear how long the girl was left alone in the vehicle. Her name and other details about what happened haven't been released.
