ARDMORE, OK-- Police in Ardmore are investigating the death of a one month old baby they said died while traveling through the area with its family.

Investigators said heat may have played a factor even though the child's parents were in the car when it happened.

Ardmore Resident Tammie Doughty pauses at the thought of her child dying, after hearing what happened to the infant.

"It really hits close because I do have six year," said Doughty.

Police said a mother ran inside this convenience store on Michelin road in Ardmore shortly after 3:30 p.m. Monday.

"This child was traveling with its parent and another 15 month old child, they were coming from Ohio to the Ringling Oklahoma area," said Sgt. Ryan Hunnicutt.

Workers at the store called 911 and were given CPR instructions. The infant was transported to Mercy Memorial hospital where she later died.

Investigators said the car the family was traveling in did not have air conditioning and only one window would roll down.

"The preliminary assumption is that this is a heat related death based on what was absorbed at the ER and some of the medical examiners initial findings," said. Sgt. Hunnicutt.
    
With temperatures soaring throughout the state, Doughty said she can only imagine what that baby endured.

"I feel sad because I mean it is a hundred degrees outside and the humidity is outrageous," said Doughty.   

Investigators said the 15-month old child that was also traveling with the family has been placed in child protective services.

They said neglect has not been ruled out in this case.
     
"Anytime a child is severely injured or dies from a result of injuries, we look to make sure there's not a case of neglect or there's  not a case of intentional abuse or any intent to harm a child," said Hunnicutt.

Police said so far no arrests have been made.
