NEW HAVEN, Conn – A Connecticut woman whose 15-month-old son died this month after her husband left him in a car on a hot day says she forgives him.
Lindsey Rogers-Seitz (SITES) of Ridgefield says that her husband, Kyle Seitz, was extremely distraught after bringing their son to a hospital. She says she told her husband she loved him and made sure he looked at her.
Rogers-Seitz, who also has two daughters, said in an interview Tuesday with The Associated Press that her family is grieving together.
Police say the father was supposed to bring his son Benjamin to daycare but went to work and left his son inside the car on July 7 for "an extended period of time."
A police investigation is continuing and the official cause of death has not been determined.
