LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - An Indiana toddler has died after his neck was stuck in a car window.

Two-year-old Logan Vanderkleed of Lafayette died in a hospital Thursday morning - a week after the accident.

Family members say Logan was sleeping in the car on Aug. 17, about 30 feet from where his father and grandfather were working on another car. His parents, Drew and Lisa Vanderkleed, say they believe he had woken up, stuck his head out of the window and accidentally rolled it up.

Drew Vandkerkleed says he and his father attempted to resuscitate the boy and called 911. Logan had been without oxygen for several minutes and had no pulse.

Tippecanoe County Chief Deputy Steve Hartman says prosecutors are reviewing the case, which investigators have determined was an accident.
