The child could not be resuscitated by first responders and was taken to a nearby hospital, the transit authority PATCO said in a news release late Friday afternoon.
PATCO President John Hanson said the baby was inside the car for an unknown number of hours and police were trying to locate the vehicle owner.
“The incident is in the very early stages of its investigation and no further information is being released at this time,” said Alexandra McVeigh, spokeswoman for the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.
High temperatures Friday afternoon reached the upper 80s in the area. The PATCO Hi-Speedline operates daily service between Lindenwold in South Jersey and Center City Philadelphia.
