A two-year-old toddler was forgotten in a vehicle for an extended period of time. The child was unconscious when he was rescued from the vehicle and taken to a clinic Jabal Mukaber neighborhood of Jerusalem in critical condition.

United Hatzalah and Magen David Adom paramedics arrived at the scene and performed lengthy resuscitation efforts on the toddler before transporting him to the hospital.

Hatzalah paramedic Ramzi Batash said: "When we arrived at the scene, we came across a two-year-old boy who, according to his family, had been in the vehicle for a long time and as a result had lost consciousness."

"With the help of the health provider's staff, we performed resuscitation operations on him and then he was evacuated in an intensive care unit to the hospital in critical condition while receiving respiratory aid," Batash said.
