A baby girl died and a toddler was in critical condition Saturday after they were left in separate vehicles in the Indianapolis area on a day in which the temperature hit 104 degrees, a record for the date.
Jester said the baby's father, Joshua Stryzanski, 18, was being held at the Hancock County jail on a charge of neglect of a dependent resulting in death, the Star reported.
Greenfield is a city of about 20,000 east of Indianapolis.
In the other incident, at about 3 p.m. police broke a window in a Ford Explorer to free a 16-month-old girl in the city of Fishers, northeast of Indianapolis, the Star reported. The child suffered a seizure before being taken to an Indianapolis hospital, a Fishers police spokesman told the Star.

There was a horrible child abuse case here in Utah a few years ago. Four year old Ethan Stacy was staying with his biological mother and step father, and after only 9 days, he was dead. His step father did horrific things to that sweet little boy (things I will not go into detail about), and his mother did absolutely nothing to stop the abuse because she was "afraid" of what would happen if she did. Once Ethan passed, his step father smashed his face with a hammer in hopes of disfiguring the boy so he couldn't be identified. Both parents then reported the boy missing before coming clean to authorities and taking them to the place where they buried the boy's body in a shallow grave.

Just over two years ago Michigan saw one of it’s worst cases of child abuse. A 4-year-old boy named Dominick Calhoun, who had accidently wet his pants, was beaten and tortured by his mother’s boyfriend for four days until his little body couldn’t take anymore and shut down. While he was suffering from the hands of one who should have been caring for him (I won’t get into the horrific details) no one came to his rescue. Even as he begged his mother to help no one came to his aide. His own mother was too concerned about outstanding warrants and pot plants to help her baby. Nothing was discovered until his aunt came over to buy some drugs. When she realized what was happening she called Dominick’s grandfather (Rick Calhoun) who rushed over, but he was too late to help his beloved grand...son. Even though Rick Calhoun knew that he couldn’t bring Dominick back he made a promise to Dominick that his death wouldn’t be in vain. That was how Dominick’s Law was created, and now the State of Michigan is about to sign it into law. It will give Michigan the highest levels of punishment for child abusers in the country. The Calhoun family feels that had this law already been in existence then Dominick would still be with them. They aren’t looking into the past now though, but instead are looking forward. They believe that all of their hard work lobbying for the new law will help save other children and that if it saves just one child than it will have been worth it.
Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect. Every year 3.3 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States involving 6 million children; that’s because reports can include multiple children. The United States has the worst record in the industrialized nation – losing five children every day due to abuse-related deaths. Let's STOP child abuse! Join The Fight!!
