Garland news, Texas news.

A 9-month-old girl was found dead inside a hot vehicle as car wash employees were vacuuming the backseat with the father.

The infant, who was not identified, was found unresponsive at around 5:15 p.m. near 3300 Arapaho Road.

Authorities said that it is too early to determine how long the infant was abandoned in the vehicle but it was clear that she was left for a long while.

"We're trying to determine how much time passed by from the time the child was placed in the vehicle until the time she was found in the vehicle by the father," stated Lt. Pedro Barineau.

The father asked for help and brought the baby to the employees in Jerry's Express Car Wash. He is reportedly cooperating with investigators.
