2-Yr-Old Girl Dies In Hot Car While Mom Allegedly Fell Asleep After Drinking With Friend Nearby

The child's mother told the police that she left the heat on in the car and also covered the baby up in a blanket, while leaving the windows rolled up.

California police have reportedly detained the mother of a 2-year-old toddler who died after she was left alone in the car for over five hours, reports People. The girl was left in the car with the heat on and covered in a blanket. Since formal charges are still pending in the death of June Love Agosto, authorities have not released the name of the mother, yet. The toddler's life came to a tragic end on Sept. 23 after being found unconscious in a vehicle that was parked in West Carson, California. Even though the baby was rushed to the airport when she was found, it was in vain as efforts to revive her were unsuccessful. 


The child’s mother allegedly told police that, at around 11 p.m. on September 21, she left June buckled into her car set, with a blanket over her legs, and the heat on, according to a police report. The windows of the car were also rolled up. She then, allegedly, told police she’d been drinking with a friend in a vehicle parked next to hers. She eventually said she fell asleep in the friend’s car, according to the report. 


The report states that the woman woke up nearly five hours later, and when she went in to open her car, she noticed that June had vomit on her clothes. It was also reported that June sustained burn injuries to her face, arms, and chest. Police allege that she removed June from the vehicle, placed her on the lawn, and sprayed her with a hose to try to cool her off. According to the police reports, EMTs noted the toddler’s body temperature at the scene was 107.5 degrees.


FOX 11 spoke to June’s grandmother, Helen Hernandez, who said the girl had recently celebrated her 2nd birthday. “She’s my only grandchild. I just came out here and June celebrated her second birthday. June Love was a beautiful baby, she deserved a good life. She deserved to grow up, go to school,” said June Love’s grandmother Helen Hernandez. “Our family is broken, we just need prayers and we’re just broken,” said godmother Jessica Peterson-Burns.


It was also revealed in the reports that June Love's mother used to be a drug addict. However, it was also stated that she had gone through rehabilitation. She told police she also has a 9-year-old son who a relative adopted when he was three. No arrests have been made so far in connection with the death of the two-year-old girl.  An autopsy will be performed to determine an official cause of death.


A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise funds for June Love's funeral services. The page has a touching message from June's father's cousin who wrote: This page is being set up on behalf of my Cousin Garry who has experienced the worse loss ever of his daughter June Love Agosto.  June was just 2 years old, full of life and loved by so many.  Unfortunately, a tragedy occurred and beautiful June has become an Angel in Heaven.  Any donation is greatly appreciated as they will help to pay for funeral services. They have managed to raise over $6,500 so far.
