A 16-month-old girl died after a male relative left her in a hot vehicle in west Baltimore for about four hours, according to police officials.

At 12:58 p.m. Friday, police and fire crews found Sabriya Towels in cardiac arrest, in a vehicle in Lansdowne, according to a news release Friday evening by Baltimore County Police.

The baby was taken to St. Agnes Hospital where she was pronounced dead "a short time later," the release states.

No criminal charges have been filed, it states.

During the investigation, detectives learned that the relative had picked her up at a location and was to drop her off at the Highland Village Head Start Center.

However, he drove to a home in the 2700 block of S. Paca St. in West Baltimore, went inside and slept for about four hours.

When he drove to the center, located in the 4100 block of McDowell Lane in Lansdowne, to pick up the child, he realized that she had not been dropped off, the release states. "He ran back out to the truck and found the child in the vehicle."

Her body will be taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy, according to police.
