    The child, whose identity and gender weren't released, was rushed to Williamsport Regional Medical Center but was pronounced dead on arrival.

    The National Weather Service said a high of 97 degrees was recorded in the city just after 4 p.m. Friday. The weather service forecasts that almost all of the Lower 48 states could hit a high of 95 degrees on Monday. 

    Lycoming County authorities said an autopsy was scheduled at Lehigh Valley Medical Center in Allentown.
