15-month-old child found dead in car

HERKIMER - Herkimer County 911 received a call Wednesday afternoon, reporting a 15 month old female infant unresponsive in a vehicle parked in the driveway at 10 Ransom Street in the Village of Dolgeville, Herkimer County.

The investigation has revealed that at approximately 8 am, the father of the decedent had dropped off two other children at school and a third child off at a relative's house.  During this time, the infant was properly secured in a child seat in the rear passenger side of the vehicle.  The father appears to have left the infant within the vehicle after getting ready and leaving for work. 

The infant was pronounced deceased at the scene.  An autopsy is scheduled for today.

The investigation is continuing.
