Authorities did not say how long the girl was in the car, parked in the family’s driveway in Coram, before her mother called 911 around 4 p.m. Tuesday, WNBC reported.

“The call was for a young child left in a car whose lips were turning blue,” Suffolk County police Lt. Kevin Beyrer told News 12 Long Island. “The mother brought the child into the house and was instructed to do CPR.”

Authorities took the girl to Stony Brook University Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, according to News 12 Long Island.

"She was a sweet little girl,” neighbor Scott Krusen told WABC. “Our kids played together. (She was) a very loving, wonderful kid.”

Beyrer told the New York Post that the girl was with her mother and two other siblings earlier in the day while they ran errands.

“After returning home, the girl’s mother went inside believing all of the children were out of the car,” Suffolk County police told the newspaper.

The girl was found as temperatures in the area reached the low 90s on Tuesday, according to data from the National Weather Service.

It was not immediately clear whether charges would be filed in the case.
