A five-months-old baby died on Sunday after being left inside a car in the West Bank settlement of Shilo in the scorching heat for seven hours.

Magen David Adom paramedics who arrived at the scene said they pulled the baby from the car in critical condition and attempted to revive the child, but were forced to rule the baby dead not long after.

Police said the baby was forgotten in the car by its parents, and that they have opened an investigation into the incident.

Almost two weeks ago a nine-month-old baby died in a similar incident in Ramat Gan, when she was left in the family jeep for almost eight hours on a sunny day.

The baby's mother found the baby in the jeep and called paramedics, who were forced to rule it dead at the scene.
