A 3-year-old girl died Sunday after she was left alone in a hot car outside a Tampa church.
Police say Ruebensa "Hally" Rozin was pronounced dead Sunday afternoon after she was rushed to Tampa General Hospital.
Before rescuers arrived at the scene, police say parishioners at the Ebenezer Baptist Haitian Church administered CPR after finding a faint pulse.
Police say the little girl, her 1-year-old brother, and a 12-year-old arrived at the church Sunday, driven in an SUV by 25-year-old Rodline Rigby, a cousin.
"The 25-year-old cousin had a routine: Each Sunday, she would pick them up and go to church," Tampa police spokesperson Laura McElroy said. "Sunday, it appears that she believed the 12-year-old was taking the two younger kids into the childrens' section of the church, and that she walked into the adult section."
Unfortunately, McElroy said the 12-year-old thought his older cousin was bringing the 3-year-old inside.
Police say Hally was alone in the parked SUV for at least 90 minutes with outside temperature at more than 90 degrees.
When she was finally discovered, she was unconscious, investigators said. Parishioners then rushed her inside and performed CPR, but it was too late to save her.
Rigby also had to be hospitalized after becoming distraught.
McElroy says detectives are investigating, and autopsy results are expected. She says detectives could decide to bring charges, but ,"right now, it appears to be a terrible accident."
