San Jose police are investigating the death of a 9-month-old baby after they said the father forgot to drop him off at the babysitter’s before he went to work.
Sgt. Heather Randol said police received a report on Wednesday about 7:15 p.m. about an “unresponsive” baby in a car in the 3700 block of Payne Avenue. Police arrived, and the baby was declared dead a short time later. Randol said the father was supposed to drop off the baby at the babysitter’s house before he went to work but forgot.
Instead, Randol said he parked his car on the street with the baby strapped in his car seat and went to work. At the end of his work day, he returned to his car to discover his baby was unconscious. When he called 911, it was too late.
