On Tuesday, Arkansas State Police said cops got a 911 from the girls’ mom saying her two daughters were missing.

Petchenik, 21, of of 482 West 5th Street in Boonville, told the responding officers she couldn’t find her kids after waking up from an afternoon nap.

“A Booneville police officer who responded to the residence found the children, both unconscious, lying on the car’s back floorboard,” the cops said.

Tragic Laykn was pronounced dead at a Booneville hospital.

Her body was transported to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory where an autopsy will be conducted.

Her little sister Olivia was hospitalized in Little Rock, cops said, where she remains in a critical condition.

“Both are the apparent victims of heat while they were inside a car parked outside their mother’s home in Booneville yesterday,” the state police said.

The statement didn’t reveal how both children ended up in the parked car.

Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division are leading the investigation.

Their case file will then be submitted to Logan County prosecuting attorney for consideration.

On the day of the incident, scorching temperatures soared reached the 90s in Booneville, per

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have warned that kids left in parked cars are vulnerable to heat stroke and possibly death.

The agency warns Americans never to leave children in vehicles because “cars can heat up to dangerous temperatures very quickly.”

“Leaving a window open is not enough,” the CDC noted. “Temperatures inside the car can rise almost 20 degrees Fahrenheit within the first 10 minutes, even with a window cracked open.”

According to the National Safety Council, there have been 11 hot car deaths in 2020.

There were a total of 53 deaths in 2018 and 52 the following year – but almost every state has experienced at least one of the 860 Pediatric Vehicular Heatstroke fatalities since 1998.

Jan Null, a Certified Consulting Meteorologist of the Department of Meteorology and Climate Science at San Jose State University, has been tracking this data.

His research found that in more than half of these cases, the child was forgotten in the car by their parent or guardian.
