VIDEO: A 4-month-old girl died Tuesday after being left in a car outside a Phoenix school district building for several hours. Phoenix firefighters were called to the scene near 39th and Sweetwater avenues just before 4 p.m. When crews arrived on scene at the Washington Elementary School District facility, the child was beyond any resuscitative efforts and was pronounced deceased, Phoenix Fire Captain Rob McDade said. Police say the child's foster or adoptive father is an administrator at the building. The father told detectives he forgot to drop the infant off after an appointment. When he went to leave work around 3:30 p.m., he found the child in the car. Police say the man and his wife are parents of adoptive and foster children. It is unclear at this time if charges will be filed, according to Phoenix Police Detective Luis Samudio.
