Wichita, Kansas --- A 10-month-old foster child died in Wichita, Kansas, after being left inside a hot car for two hours on a 90-degree day, police said Friday.

Detectives questioned the foster parents, two men ages 26 and 29, and booked the older one, Seth Michael Jackson, on a charge of child endangerment while the investigation in the Thursday evening tragedy continues.

"The child had been picked up from the babysitter somewhere around four o'clock in the afternoon...and somehow forgotten inside of the vehicle," Lt. Todd Ojile said.

After two hours had passed, one of the parents saw something on television that made him remember the baby girl, ran outside and got the child out of the car seat and brought her into the home. Police got a 911 call about a child unconscious and not breathing, and were on the scene within minutes. The baby was pronounced dead at 6:49 p.m.
