LUFKIN, TX (KSLA) - A Huntington, Texas man forgot to drop his 3-month-old daughter off at daycare and found her in his car nearly seven hours later, according to a Lufkin Police investigation.
According to the report, 27-year-old Christopher W. Stanaland left his home Tuesday morning and dropped his son off at school before arriving to work.
The report states Stanaland did not realize he had forgotten to drop off his daughter, Isabella Marie Stanaland at daycare. Stanaland returned to his vehicle and found his daughter in the rear passenger seat of the vehicle, strapped in her child safety seat.
Stanaland removed his daughter from the vehicle and a co-worker called 911, the report stated.
Lufkin Fire and EMS found that Isabella was dead when they arrived.
The initial investigation indicates she died from prolonged exposure to extreme heat, as the outside temperatures exceeded 100 degrees. An autopsy will be performed Wednesday to confirm.
