Baby dies after being accidentally left in hot car for hours at mom’s job

A six-month-old baby boy was found dead outside a Virginia Domino’s restaurant on Friday after his mother left him for hours inside a hot vehicle.

The incident occurred while the baby’s mother, 30-year-old Blondia Curry, was working at the Domino’s in Emporia.

A six-month-old baby boy was found dead outside a Virginia Domino's restaurant on Friday after his mother left him for hours inside a hot vehicle   Police believe that Curry dropped off one or two children at a daycare before driving to work and possibly left the child inside the car as she began her shift

Curry said that she dropped off her other children with their grandmother before driving to work but last minute changes left her scrambling to find care for her infant son, Dameer.

‘My youngest daughter’s father calls and he said his mother wasn’t going to be able to watch [one of her daughters]. That’s what I believe threw me off,’ the mother of four said.

After dropping off her other children, however, Curry said that she forgot to take her youngest son to another relative’s house.

After receiving a call from a close friend inquiring about her kids, Curry admitted ‘I just forgot all about dropping the baby off.’

It was several hours before cops were called to the scene, but Emporia Police Chief Rick Pinksaw did not specify exactly how long.

‘It appears through the course of our investigation, that the child was left in the vehicle for an extended period of time,’ Pinksaw told ABC News.

‘We’re having a hard time wrapping our heads around how this could occur…It’s a tragic situation.’
