HOMEWOOD, Ala. (AP) — The mother of an 11-month-old girl who died after being locked inside of an SUV says she blames herself for her daughter's death.

Katie Luong told AL.com Thursday (http://bit.ly/12zDOfc ) that she wishes she could have traded places with her daughter, Gabriella, who was found locked inside of the family's SUV outside a business they own in Homewood.

Police have said the temperature inside the car was nearly 130 degrees.

Luong says she was supposed to drop her daughter off at a babysitter's house Wednesday but was preoccupied with thoughts of an employee who recently committed suicide and a close family friend who had a stroke and is still hospitalized.

Luong says she and her husband were also planning her daughter's birthday party for Sunday.
