PLEASANT GROVE (CBSDFW.COM) – Updated: 6 p.m. The mother of a 1-year-old girl who died after she was left in a hot car was released from jail Saturday on a $50,000 bond.

The Dallas County Medical Examiner confirmed the toddler’s name is Victoria Marks. She was taken to Baylor Hospital by Dallas Fire and Rescue and pronounced dead Friday after being left in a car in the parking lot of Frank Guzick Elementary School.

Her mother, Vibha Marks, is a teacher at the school located in the 5000 block of Berridge Lane in Pleasant Grove.

The teacher’s aid broke the window of the car and attempted CPR after calling 911.

The 42-year-old mother of the deceased child started working at the school shortly after spring break. The tragic incident happened in the faculty parking lot, thus students didn’t see what happened. Some students did however see police on the scene.

Grief counselors will be available for the staff and others at the school on Monday.

A letter was sent home to parents after school stating that the police department responded to an incident at the school and that students and staff were safe at all times.

Authorities have arrested her on a child abandonment charge, according to Dallas police and DISD has placed her on administrative leave.
