Police in Aubrey say a 4-year-old child is in critical condition after the child was found in a vehicle Thursday afternoon in the 10000 block of Franklin Drive in Providence Village.

The child had to be airlifted to a hospital on a particularly hot day when high temperatures reached the mid- to high 90s, according to a news release. Aubrey police said they were not sure how long the child had been left inside the vehicle.

The police department said on Facebook the child was unresponsive and required immediate medical treatment when firefighters arrived at the driveway where the child was discovered.

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services was notified by the police, the Aubrey Police Department said, adding that no criminal charges have yet been filed.
