A father died Sunday evening from the injuries he sustained while rescuing his 3-year-old daughter from a vehicle after it rolled into a pond on Indianapolis' north side. Divers and rescuers were called to a pond on Fluvia Terrace after 4:30 p.m. Witnesses told police that the father had stopped to talk to someone and left his 3-year-old in the vehicle. The child hit the gear and shifted the car into neutral, rolling it into the pond. Authorities initially believed she pushed it into reverse, but later clarified to say neutral.
