Cops probing parents after baby girl died in 120-degree heatwave


Cops probing parents after baby girl died in 120-degree heatwave

Detectives are probing the parents of a baby girl who died after being exposed to extreme temperatures during a 120-degree heatwave in Arizona.

Four-month-old Tanna Rae Wroblewski had been boating with her family on Lake Havasu when she suddenly lost consciousness due to suspected heat-related complications on July 5, according to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, which is probing the circumstances surrounding her death.

“We are investigating the entire situation [including] what caused the death and what led to it,” public information officer Anita Mortensen told The Post Thursday. “There have been no arrests at this time.”

Although the infant’s official cause of death has not been released by the Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s Office, officials believe it’s linked to a heatwave that has roasted the state with temperatures of more than 123 degrees this week.

Little Tanna’s mother, Alyssa Wroblewski, took to social media to detail her grief and was bashed for allegedly exposing her child to danger.

Wroblewski — who has not been charged in her daughter’s death — posted a photo of the baby on Facebook Monday with a caption saying it would have been the four-month anniversary of her birth — to which some observers called her “irresponsible and a “bad mother.”

Her Facebook page, which showed photos of the family boating with the infant in prior months, was shut down as of Wednesday, according to

The Wroblewskis then set up a GoFundMe to “support” the family.

“Tanna Rae, our real life angel became an angel in heaven. We are beyond devastated, heartbroken, there are just no words,” she wrote on the GoFundMe page, which had raised more than $48,000 by Thursday.

“Our precious baby girl gave us her last smiles and we gave her our last kisses. We will never understand why you had to leave so soon, you were just too perfect,” she wrote.

The tragedy struck as Lake Havasu City soared to a sweltering high of 120 degrees Friday. A heatwave in Arizona reportedly melted window blinds and was poised to shatter summer records this week.

Phoenix, which is roughly 190 miles from Lake Havasu, was forecast to soar to a sizzling high of 115  degrees Thursday.
