The father of a 9-month-old girl who died after being left in a hot pickup truck forgot to drop his child off at her sitter before going to his job, he told police.

Steven Lillie of Cocoa, Fla., stepped outside of the strip mall office where he worked about 4:45 p.m. ET Monday and screamed in horror when he found his daughter’s lifeless body still strapped in the truck where she had been placed earlier in the day.

“We got a call from the co-workers saying that the child was in the back seat. We think the child may have been there for several hours,” said Lt. Donna Seyferth, spokeswoman for the Rockledge Police Department. “Our officers tried to resuscitate the child, and rescuers tried every lifesaving measure they could, but it was not successful. It’s beyond tragic.”

    • Me too, because it could happen to anyone! Everyone with kids should always remember to check the back seat before they get out of the car, even if you KNOW your kid isn’t in the car. If you do it every single time, it will become habit.
