In Louisiana, a 10-month-old girl was trapped under her 43-year-old father who had died from cardiac arrest.
Authorities announced on October 11 that she was rescued three days later.

Her mother was in jail due to a minor offense, and she was allowed to go home to look after the girl and her five-year-old brother on October 11.
The boy told neighbors about circumstances on the night of the 10th.

According to the coroner, the father died on the bed and the girl was stuck between headboard of the bed and his dead body.
There was not any conditioner in the house, and the temperature was over 100 Fahrenheit when they got into the house.
"The girl was dehydrated, but she could breathe. It was miracle that she didn't die," the coroner said.
She was taken to the hospital and it was predicted that she would get better soon.

米ルイジアナ州で、生後10カ月の女児が、心停止で死亡した父親(43)の体の下に挟まり身動きが取れなくなったが、3日後に無事救出された。当局が11日明らかにした。

母親は軽犯罪で収監されており、女児と5歳の兄の世話をするため11日に帰宅が許可された。兄は10日夜に隣人らに事態を知らせていたという。

検視官は、父親がベッドの上で死亡し、女児は父の体とベッドのヘッドボードの間に挟まれていたと説明した。
さらに、家にはエアコンがなく、入室時は華氏100度(摂氏約37.8度)を超えていたとし「女児は脱水状態だったが、呼吸ができた。死亡しなかったのは奇跡的」と述べた。 女児は病院に収容され、完全回復が見込まれているという。
