BATAVIA, Ohio (AP) - The Clermont County coroner's office says a two-year-old girl found dead in a sweltering sport utility vehicle Thursday was there for about eight hours.
A coroner's spokeswoman says Cecilia Slaby died of systemic hyperthermia after being left in the SUV outside a middle school in Union Township near Batavia.
West Clermont Schools Superintendent Gary Brooks says the girl's mother, Brenda Nesselroad-Slaby, is an assistant principal who reported to work that day before 7:15 a.m.
The girl was in the car until about 3 p.m., when school staffers who spotted the child and called police.
A teacher performed CPR, and told a 911 operator the girl's body was blistered from the heat.
