If you have a child, it’s usually a good idea to know where that child is.

The Li family left their house Sunday morning to visit the grave of their grandfather, police said. They went to lunch and then got ice cream. When they returned to their home around 1 p.m., they were exhausted and took a nap.

When they woke up four hours later, they realized that their 3-year-old daughter, Kiara Li, was missing. They found her unconscious in the back of the vehicle, ABC7 reported.

Kiara was rushed to Pomona Valley Hospital, where she later died. Police suspect no foul play and said it appears to be a tragic accident.

Both parents told police they thought the other parent or one of their older children had gotten the child out of the car. The local temperature hit the mid-90s that day.
