FACTS: On a warm spring day in South Carolina the father of a one-year-old girl (S.G.) placed his daughter in her car seat in the back seat of his truck, intending to take her to day care. The father, however, forgot to stop at the day care center. Instead, he went to work and left the child in his parked truck, with the windows closed, for nearly eight hours. When he returned to his truck after work, he found the child unresponsive. She died from complications of hyperthermia shortly thereafter.
