LAKE HAVASU CITY — The Lake Havasu City Police Department has arrested a man for manslaughter after the death of his infant daughter.
LHCPD officers responded to the area of Cadet Lane and McCulloch Boulevard for a report of an unresponsive child.
Upon arrival, officers learned that Ty Martin, 23, had allegedly left his infant daughter unattended in his car for about 45 minutes while visiting his friend Noah Grabowski.
Officers immediately began CPR until the fire department arrived and transported her to the hospital. LHCPD said the baby never recovered, and she was pronounced deceased a short time later.
The investigation into the infant’s death is ongoing, but detectives said they have gathered enough information to warrant charging Martin with manslaughter.
Additionally, Noah Grabowski, 23, was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and cultivation of marijuana after a search warrant was served in relation to the manslaughter investigation. Grabowski’s residence is located in the 40 block of Tailstar Lane. Police said Martin and Grabowski both had their initial appearances and both were held on no bond.
LHCPD said this incident is tragic for everyone, and is completely avoidable. They also said it’s never acceptable to leave a child unattended inside a motor vehicle.
Inside temperatures can spike rapidly, even with the air conditioner running. A child left unattended in a vehicle could be subjected to a host of other dangers.
