A 9-month-old baby boy in Louisville, Kentucky, died Monday after being accidentally left in his parent’s car for several hours. One of the parents found the boy still strapped into his car seat at approximately 6:00pm on a day where the high temperature had been 89 degrees. The car was parked in the driveway of their home on the 6400 block of Glenwood Road, near Lime Kiln Lane, in east Louisville. This was the couple’s only child.
No charges have been filed yet, but Kentucky’s Bryan’s Law makes a person guilty of second-degree manslaughter or firs degree wanton endangerment if a child younger than 8 is left in a car in circumstances where there is a risk of death. The law is named after an 11-month-old who died in 1999 after being left in a hot car for two hours by his babysitter.
