An autopsy was scheduled Thursday on a baby found in a vehicle in Fullerton.
Police were called at 3:34 p.m. to the 400 block of West Wilshire Avenue on a report of an infant left in a car. Paramedics attempted to revive the child, who was under 2, but were unable to do so, said Fullerton Police Department Sgt. Eric Bridges.
Someone had taken the child out of the vehicle by the time police arrived, Bridges said. He said the baby’s relatives were on scene and cooperated with investigators.
Police are seeking to determine if the child, whose gender and age were not released, was left in the car alone, Bridges said. The Orange County Coroner’s Office will also conduct an investigation and determine the cause of death, he said.
Fullerton experienced a high of 87 degrees Wednesday.
