PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a newborn baby died after being left inside a hot car in Florida’s Panhandle.

Bay County Sheriff's officials say the baby had likely been left inside the vehicle for several hours on Wednesday afternoon.

Deputies and rescue crews were called to the home in Panama City late Wednesday. But the child could not be revived.
