NASA Employee's Baby Discovered Dead in Hot Car

Another Baby Just Died in a Hot Car — This Time, the Father Is a NASA Employee

Summer is officially over, but unfortunately, one of the causes of child deaths that comes with the season — babies being left to die in boiling-hot cars — is still a factor now that it's Fall.

On Wednesday, a 7-month-old baby was discovered dead in the back of a vehicle at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL, around 4:40 p.m. An hour before the child was found, the temperature at Huntsville airport was reported to be 94 degrees. It has been confirmed by NASA spokeswoman Jennifer Stanfield that the child's father — whose name has yet to be released — is a NASA employee who failed to drop the baby at daycare before driving to work.

The FBI is leading the investigation of the child's death, as the Marshall Space Flight Center sits on Redstone Arsenal, a federal installation.
