Toddler Dies in Hot Car After Dad Refuses to Have Window Broken

A Las Vegas man has been arrested after he refused to break the window of his new car to save his dying toddler.

Police say Sidney Deal accidentally locked his 1-year-old daughter, Sayah, in the hot car along with his keys.

When officers offered to break the window or call a tow truck, they say he refused, claiming Sayah was fine with the air conditioner on despite the hot weather.

Officers also allege that Deal told his girlfriend to hang up with an insurance company representative when he didn't like the price they quoted for a tow truck.

The officer eventually smashed the window and pulled out the girl who they believe had been trapped in there for more than an hour.

Sayah died and Deal was booked on one count of child abuse or neglect causing substantial bodily harm and is being held on a $20,000 bond.
