DALLAS  -- A 7-month-old girl is dead after she was left for
as long as four hours in a car parked in the sun in a southwest
Dallas driveway.

   Police Lt. Andy Harvey says a friend told investigators she had
taken the child's mother to work Thursday morning and was to have
taken the child to a daycare center.

   The friend went on to make other stops, though, and forgot to
deliver the child. She returned to the home and left the child in
the car by mistake with the windows rolled up.

   A neighbor discovered the unconscious baby in the car about 1:30
p.m. and called authorities. The child was taken to Methodist
Charlton Medical Center, where she was declared dead.

   No charges have been filed. The child's identity wasn't
immediately released.
