A California mother allegedly left her 3-year-old daughter to bake in a hot car while she tended to marijuana plants, police said Friday.
Little Jessica Campos was left in the parked vehicle for up to three hours Thursday before being discovered, Visalia Police said in a press release.
The temperature in the car “was determined to be at least 100 degrees at the time of the incident” and left the toddler unable to breathe, cops said.
Her mother, Eustajia Mojica Dominguez, was allegedly tending to and processing a cannabis growing operation during the time her daughter was in the car, according to the release.
Family members and responding officers performed CPR on the girl to try and revive her. She was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead.
