A 1-year-old who was left inside a hot, parked car in Pembroke Pines died Friday, and police are reminding families to not leave loved ones or pets inside a vehicle, especially during the summer months.

Law enforcement and fire officials responded to a report for medical assistance at around 5 p.m. in a parking lot in the 2200 block of North University Drive, where they found the 17-month-old child in the vehicle, according to the Pembroke Pines Police Department.

“Regrettably, CPR life-saving efforts and Fire Rescue transport did not prevent an unfortunate tragedy,” police said in a news release.

An investigation is underway. No additional information was immediately available.

Police are taking this time to remind the community to not leave children or pets inside of a parked vehicle for an extended amount of time, especially during the summer months, when temperatures inside a car can climb above 100 degrees within minutes.

“Always double check your vehicle after you park for loved ones or pets,” police said.
