The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating a 16-month-old girl's death at the request of the sheriff, according to the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.
According to ActionNewsJax in Jacksonville, dispatchers received a 911 call just after 3 p.m. Tuesday, reporting that the child had been in a hot car and was no longer breathing, according to a release from CCSO Public Information Officer Murray Smith.
The Sheriff’s Office said the toddler's father forgot to take her to day care Tuesday morning, and she sat in the hot car all day long.
WOKV reports that the girl's parents, Wendy Timonera Kwon and Young Kwon, both work in the judicial system. Because of their work with the state, the Sheriff's Office tapped the FDLE to conduct the investigation.
