A two-year-old girl has died in New Jersey after being left in a hot car parked in the family's driveway for seven hours.

First responders were called to the home in Franklin Township, which borders Princeton, on Tuesday.

The child was spotted by a neighbor in the family's gray Honda Civic, parked in the driveway on Summerall Road, and the neighbor - a firefighter - called an ambulance. 

The caller said a child had gone into cardiac arrest, and CPR was performed on the toddler but the little girl was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police knocked on the door to inform them of the tragedy, and the parents were devastated to learn what had happened.

'It was gut-wrenching, almost made me want to break into tears,' she said. 

'As a mother, just hearing that pain from another mother, it was very hurtful to hear.
