Loogootee, Ind. - Indiana State Police are investigating the death of a Martin County toddler who became asphyxiated by a car seat.
Police said the child's babysitter had buckled the child into a car seat on Wednesday in Loogootee when she realized the 11-month-old needed a change of diaper.
The babysitter told police that she unfastened the crotch buckle of the seat and left the room to get another diaper. Police said the babysitter reported she was gone from the room for no more than two minutes to get the diaper and refill a drink for another child.
When she returned, the babysitter found that the child had slid down in the seat and become asphyxiated by the upper portion of the seat harness.
The babysitter called 911 and performed CPR until emergency crews arrived. Despite their efforts, the child was pronounced dead on scene.
An autopsy was scheduled to be performed Thursday.
