Fatal family car plunge
TEMPE, Ariz. — An entire family, including three young children, died Sunday after their vehicle went into a suburban Phoenix lake, authorities said.
Nazyiah Baxter, 2, was initially hospitalized in critical condition, but the boy was pronounced dead later in the day, Tempe police said.
Emergency rescuers were called to Tempe Town Lake around 12:15 a.m. after bystanders spotted the family’s SUV enter the lake.
First responders pulled a 1yearold girl, Zariyah, and Nazyiah, from the car. They then got parents Glenn Edward Baxter, 27, and Danica Baxter, 25.
Rescuers initially overlooked a third child, who was strapped into a car seat in the last row of the vehicle. Investigators do not know what caused the crash or what led up to it.
