Couple's 'miracle baby' dies after babysitter allegedly leaves her in hot car 09/23/2019 5:25 pm PDT Comments Hobbs Police via WJW: ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (WJW) -- A New Mexico babysitter has been charged in the death of a 2-year-old girl who was left in a carseat for hours inside a hot car, police say. Tammie Brooks, 41, was supposed to take her to day care Sept. 17, but Hobbs police say she instead went to her other job and forgot the toddler in the car around 6:30 a.m. Police say Brooks even ran an errand before realizing that the child was still in the car. Officers arrived around 1:30 p.m. to find the child dead in the car, according to a news release. The child's parents told KOB4 that their only child was a miracle baby. “I had six miscarriages previously to having my daughter,” Demi Petrowski said. “I remember praying every single day, nonstop.” Brooks has been charged with abandonment or abuse of a child resulting in death, a first degree felony. She is being held at the Hobbs City Jail awaiting arraignment.
