Toddler Dies After Head Trapped in Car Window

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Police in Chesterfield County say a 2-year-old girl died after her head and neck became trapped in the window of a car where she was left unattended.

Media outlets report Mikayla Thurston of Richmond was pronounced dead Tuesday night at VCU Medical Center.

While the girl's body has been sent to a state medical examiner to determine the cause of death, Chesterfield County police Lt. P.J. McCann says the child was caught in the partially opened window. McCann says investigators are trying to determine whether the child had touched the car's power window switches.

The child's grandfather, Larry Inge, says the girl's mother had stopped at a home to drop off hair products and left the child in the car.

The incident remains under investigation.
