Kennesaw police are investigating the death of a five-month-old girl who died after being left in a parked car for over five hours Wednesday.

A family member apparently forgot the child was asleep in a car seat when she went to work at the Ivy Hall Day School on Tuscan Heights Boulevard Wednesday afternoon, Kennesaw police spokesman Scott Luther said.

"Several hours later, the baby was found unresponsive inside the car and after attempts to revive her, she was pronounced deceased at the incident location," Luther said.

The high temperature in Kennesaw Wednesday afternoon was 90 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

Police are still investigating and have not released names of the child or relative.
