Baby in critical condition after apparently being forgotten in car in central city of Elad

A baby girl is in critical condition after she was apparently left in a car in the central city of Elad.

The girl, said to be around 6 months old, is taken to the Schneider Children’s Medical Center in Petah Tikva for treatment.

According to the Ynet news site, an initial investigation found the girl’s father drove to the kollel, a yeshiva for married men, where he was studying.

The man exited the car, apparently forgetting the child was there.

The baby was left in the vehicle 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.
