WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) - A Wyoming toddler died in a parked car Friday.
Wyoming police were called to 1913 Martindale around 5:20 p.m.on a report of an unresponsive 2-year-old girl, who later wasidentified as Lesli Selena Cuevas.
Lesli was pronounced dead once emergency crews arrived.
Neighbors around the home said they had heard yelling andscreaming from the residence for quite some time, but many thoughtthe kids who lived in the home were just playing.
Gwien Kimmel, who lives next door, went into the home to findout what was happening. She saw the toddler on the living roomfloor.
"I tried to see if she was breathing," Kimmel said. "I tiltedher head back (and) tried to do a couple of breaths in."
Lesli was hot to the touch and was vomiting, Kimmel said. Herattempts to perform CPR were unsuccessful.
Neighbor Amber Johnson said she didn't know how long Lesli hadbeen in the car.
"The little girl said she was sleeping in the car, so her momleft her in there to take a nap," Johnson said.
Lesli's body temperature recorded by paramedics on scene was 108degrees, said Stephen Cohle, the Kent County Medical Examiner --however, 108 is the thermometer's limit and the car was hotter than120 degrees.
Hyperthermia is being listed as a cause of death.
