An investigation was underway Thursday morning into the death of a baby found in a vehicle in Fullerton.

Police were called at 3:34 p.m. to the 400 block of West Wilshire Avenue. Paramedics attempted to revive the baby, but were unable to do so and the child was pronounced dead at the scene, said Fullerton Police Department Sgt. Eric Bridges.

Someone had taken the child out of vehicle by the time police arrived, Bridges said, but 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 infant was under 2, he said.

The child was released to the Orange County Coroner’s Office, which will also conduct an investigation and determine the cause of death, Bridges said.

Fullerton experienced a high of 87 degrees Wednesday.
