Wichita child’s condition improves after being found in a hot car


WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – A child’s condition is improving after being in a hot car on Monday. A Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor told KSN firefighters and paramedics were dispatched to a home in the 300 block of South Belmont shortly before 6 p.m.

Officials told KSN the child was a girl but did not provide her age. It also is unknown whether she was left in the car or climbed inside it while playing. Police said the incident is not a criminal investigation.

“We are still trying to determine the reason as far as the circumstance surrounding the case. This case is still being handled by EMCU,” said Officer Paul Cruz.

Wichita Police Department Sgt. Jesse Hancock cautioned parents about knowing where their children are at all times.

“Watch your kids, know where they are and cars are really dangerous places,” Hancock said. “They heat up really, really quick.”

The National Weather Service says the temperature in Wichita was 88 degrees at the time.
