The prevailing heat-wave that has engulfed several US estates these days claimed one life in suburban Indianapolis; the victim was a 4-month-old baby girl. However, the baby’s death resulted off a serious mistake on her father’s part; he left the innocent girl; inside his car, in the triple-digit Greenfield heat Saturday.

Another similar incident was reported from Fishers where a 16-month-old girl required hospitalization; busy in shopping, her mother left the girl trapped inside her Ford Explorer SUV. In Greenfield, a family member rushed the 4-month-old to a hospital whom she discovered trapped in the car seat.

Police said the baby was pronounced dead by hospital authorities. Subsequently, police arrested Joshua Strycinski, the 19-year-old father of the victim. Joshua faces preliminary charges of neglect of a dependent; resulting in her death.

In the other incident occurring in nearby Fishers, police were called at ‘Simply Chic,’ a renowned store where, in the parking lot, they were told a 16-month-old baby girl was seen, locked inside the SUV. Officers were forced to break the SUV’s side window; to rescue the girl.

The temperature inside the vehicle was as high as 124 degrees. Though the girl was immediately taken to Peyton Manning Children's Hospital Indianapolis, her condition was not known. Her mother Meg Trueblood, 30, was charged with neglect who confessed to police that she went shopping while the child was left for an hour.
