A report from Georgia says an 11-month-old child died after being left in a hot car by grandparents for two hours. A TV report indicates confusion on the part of grandparents on which had responsibility for the child.

A sheriff's spokesman said the matter remains under investigation. No charges have been filed.

The case is similar to that of the death of 18-month-old Thomas Naramore, also apparently left accidentally in his father's care on a hot day in July in Hot Springs. A special prosecutor continues to review whether a charge will be filed in the death against Circuit Judge Wade Naramore.

From the report:

The infant was the 19th child to die in the United States in 2015 because of being left inside a hot car, according to the Department of Meteorology & Climate Science at San Jose State University in California.

Widespread attention was brought to the issue in 2014 after a Georgia father spent an entire day at the office while his nearly 2-year-old son was still strapped in his car seat. Justin Ross Harris has pleaded not guilty to felony murder charges in the death of 22-month-old Cooper Harris.
