8-4-05 - A one-year-old Lubbock boy is dead after he was left in his mother's car all day.
The tragedy unfolded Wednesday. Lubbock police say Joseph Duemer's mother drove to a Madison's Place Day Care late yesterday afternoon, intending to pick up her son. But the day-care staff said Joseph had never been left at the center that day.
So the mother returned to her car and found her son unconscious in the back seat. He was pronounced dead at the hospital a short time later.
The National Weather Service says Lubbock's temperature peaked at 93 degrees yesterday. An autopsy is planned on the child.
Police are still investigating and have not disclosed the mother's identity. No charges have been filed.
