Officials said the girl was left in the car when her mother, 33-year-old Casey Dyan Keller, drove to a liquor store with three children, returned home but left the 3-year-old in the car.

Deputy Bill Dunn initially thought the girl was dead when he found her inside the vehicle.

“Once the cold air hit her, I started noticing her eyes fluttering,” Dunn said.

He rushed her to the hospital where she stayed for three days.

Keller was arrested and faces child neglect charges, according to media reports from earlier this year.
