The unidentified tot was found unconscious in the family’s Jeep outside their home around 6:30 p.m. after her parents called 911, Tampa police told WFTS.

Police said her father had used the car to drive other children to school Monday morning, then came home and switched cars and went to work himself. The girl was left in the car all day.
