Toddler Dies in Hot Car

 

Just as Oklahoma thought it was about to escape the long hot summer without a death of a child left in a hot car, a 5-month old boy is found dead in a car in Glenpool. Police say the toddler had been left for 8 hours in the car on Thursday.

 

The baby's mother, 38-year old Diedra Tucker, a high school teacher, told officers she accidentally left the child in her car in the school parking lot. (JB)
