Dad put baby girl in freezer after accidentally leaving her in hot car

A Texas man has been charged after he accidentally left his six-month-old daughter in a scorching hot car, leading to her death.

The 33-year-old was charged with manslaughter on Tuesday following ongoing investigations.

ABC News reports the man had dropped his two other children, aged five and three, off at daycare and returned home, forgetting his baby daughter was in the backseat.


It wasn’t until a few hours later he discovered the child and allegedly put her inside a fridge to desperately try and cool her down before calling 911, court documents state.

The father has since been released on bail.
