The 6-month-old baby left in a car in the afternoon heat in Elad has died, Schneider Children’s Medical Center in Petah Tikva says in a statement.

The baby was forgotten in the vehicle and left there for several hours. Temperatures are around 31 degrees Celsius (approximately 88 degrees Fahrenheit) in Elad.

A friend of the child’s father asked to borrow the car, at which point he discovered the baby.

She was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but medics were unable to save her life.
