Evansville Police Department was dispatched this morning to the 400 block of East Buena Vista regarding a two year old not breathing. When the first officer arrived to the scene they found the child unresponsive and started CPR on the child, before the Evansville Fire Department arrived to the scene.

After several live-saving attempts were not successful, the child was confirmed dead at the scene.

The child's father who was at the scene, told police that he put his daughter to bed around 9:30 p.m the night before, and when he went to check on her in the morning, he found her unresponsive.

The investigation is currently ongoing.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
