Tot dies in hot car in Manacor
10 August 2018 @ 22:36

A 10-MONTH-OLD baby has died after being left shut in a parked car from 07.00 to 15.00 in Manacor (Mallorca).

National Police say her grandfather, 56, was looking after her and claims he left her in the car initially because she was asleep, but then 'forgot' she was inside.

He did not remember until eight hours later.

The car-owner, a Spaniard, flagged down a doctor and two nurses he saw walking along the street after leaving the health centre near where the vehicle was parked.

But when they reached her, it was too late to save her.

The grandfather was taken to Manacor hospital in a state of shock and anxiety.

How could that happen? You wouldn't leave a baby in a car in this heat even if it was asleep - and how could you forget for eight hours?
Obviously we don't know all the details but this is a tragedy whatever the extenuating circumstances may have been - if there were any. That poor child must have suffered horribly.
