1-year-old Indiana girl suffocates under folded SUV seat
INDIANAPOLIS (WKRC) - An 18-month-old central Indiana girl has died after a rear seat of an SUV folded down on top of her and she suffocated, WTTV reports.
A detective with the Grant County Sheriff's Department says Khole Villarreal of Kokomo died Sunday in the accident.
Detective Erin Keppeler says her parents were helping a relative move when the girl was killed. The girl was apparently sleeping on the third row seat when her father pressed a button that automatically folded the seat down so they could load the rear portion of the SUV.
Detective Keppeler says there was a miscommunication between the parents about where the girl was at the time. They found her unresponsive under the folded seat sometime later.
