A 3-week-old baby was left in a closed car this afternoon in Ashdod for several minutes, and escaped in light condition.

MDA paramedics arriving at the scene administered first aid to the infant, who is suffering from heat stroke. It was decided that an evacuation to the hospital was unnecessary.

Last Friday, Hannah Rina Feldman, a year and three months old, was forgotten in a closed car in Beitar Ilit.

The tragedy occurred in the afternoon hours, as the child's father went out to run some errands with his daughter in the car. When he returned home he forgot that his daughter was in the car.

When over an hour elapsed, his wife asked him where Hanna was, and he immediately ran ought and got his daughter out of the car while she was already unconscious. The parents called MDA, and the paramedics evacuated her to the hospital, where Doctors had no choice but to declare her dead.
