Authorities in Kansas’ Dickinson County say an 18-month-old girl died after being found unresponsive in a sweltering car that the sheriff says she climbed into at the family’s rural home.
Sheriff Gareth Hoffman told the Topeka Capital-Journal that Olivia Ann Engstrom died Sunday at the family’s home seven miles northeast of Abilene.
Hoffman said the toddler had last been seen a few hours before her body was found, and that the girl had been playing outside with her siblings when she somehow got into a parked car. The sheriff said it’s unclear how she managed to do that.
Hoffman said no foul play was suspected.
