Man Arrested After Leaving Baby In Hot Van Then Tried To Revive Her By Putting Her In Fridge

A Texas father, Michael Thedford, from Melissa, who attempted to revive his six-month-old dying daughter by placing her in a refrigerator after he left her in a sweltering car for hours, has been arrested by the police on Tuesday 21 June and charged with manslaughter

The 33-year-old left his five-year-old and three year-old children at the daycare centre but as his youngest child, named locally as Fern, was suffering with a virus and a fever, he decided to take her home.

On arrival back at his house Michael Thedford went inside his house and fell asleep waking around 1pm, roughly four hours later. To his horror he had left the child in the car outside the property in estimated 91 degrees Fahrenheit (32.7 C).

He found her unresponsive before taking her into the house before placing his daughter in the refrigerator "for an undetermined length of time prior to calling 911."

The unemployed high school teacher then called his wife while trying to perform CPR on his child. When officers with the Collin County Sheriffs Department arrived at the scene shortly afterwards the baby was found dead in the kitchen.

Thedford said that his wife, a vet, was at work at the time of the incident. He was arrested on a charge of manslaughter and later released after posting a $20,000 bond. Child Protective Services are investigating after the incident.
