ROSEBURG — The mother of an Oregon girl who died after being left in a hot car told officers she thought he had dropped her daughter off at daycare.
Roseburg police say in an affidavit that 38-year-old Nicole Engler found her 21-month-old daughter unconscious and blue after finishing her shift as a nurse practitioner at Evergreen Family Medicine.
Engler rushed the toddler back to the medical facility, but she could not be saved.
Engler has been charged with second-degree manslaughter. Court records do not list an attorney to speak on her behalf.
The outside temperature was about 80 degrees (26 Celsius) when the toddler was discovered in the backseat Thursday afternoon.
