GREENFIELD, Ind. -- A baby girl, just a few months old, has died, and a 16-month-old is hospitalized, in separate incidents near Indianapolis in which children were found trapped in cars during record-setting 105-degree heat.  

The baby who died was found by police this afternoon in Greenfield, about 25 miles west of Indianapolis. Police say it appears she had been left in the car for "an extended period of time." Police aren't providing further information, saying the investigation is continuing.  

In the town of Fishers, 15 miles northwest of Indianapolis, police broke a side window of a Ford Explorer SUV to rescue a 16-month-old girl who was locked inside.

Police had been called to a store parking lot and found the child.

They say the girl began having seizures shortly after she was taken inside an air-conditioned building. She was taken to a hospital. There's no word on her condition.  

The mother of the girl has been charged with neglect.
