ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a 3-year-old central Indiana girl has died after her father found her inside a hot car.

Madison County Coroner Marian Dunnichay says Hannah Grace Miller was pronounced dead at a hospital Sunday evening.

Dunnichay says the girl had a high core body temperature.

The Herald Bulletin reports the girl was unaccounted for over a two-hour period before her father found her. He immediately submerged her in water and began performing CPR.

It wasn't immediately clear how the girl got into the car.
