The condition of a 2-year-old Wichita girl is improving after she was critically injured from being locked in a hot car, a police spokesman said Tuesday.
A police report about the injury, at a home in the 300 block of South Belmont, said an officer reported a 2-year-old girl “becoming overheated and losing consciousness after being locked in a vehicle.”
Police are still investigating the circumstances, department spokesman Officer Paul Cruz said Tuesday.
On Monday, police said the child was rushed to a Wichita hospital in critical condition after being found by her father Monday afternoon in the family’s car.
Never miss a local story.
The girl and her siblings had apparently been playing hide and seek, police Sgt. Jesse Hancock said Monday evening.
