Update: Shilo Baby Dies After Forgotten in Vehicle

A five-month-old girl died, Sunday afternoon, after he was left in a vehicle in the Binyamin region Jewish community of Shilo, where the outside temperature was about 31Celsius/88Fahrenheit. Magen David Adom paramedics tried to resuscitate him but were forced to pronounce her dead.

The incident comes two weeks after the death of a nine-month-old in Ramat Gan, next to Tel Aviv, who was left in a vehicle for seven hours. There are a number of bills in the Knesset intended to prevent such tragedies.
