A four-year-old child accidentally locked inside a van died in Modi'in Illit on Thursday.

Police are questioning a Breslov hassid teacher who allegedly forgot the boy. The child attended the teacher's Talmud Torah class.

A United Hatzalah doctor and Magen David Adom paramedics found the
child unconscious and not breathing in the vehicle and tried to save his life, but all their efforts were fruitless. The teacher was distraught, as he had volunteered to take the child to class but had forgotten him in the vehicle and remembers only hours after arriving.

Emergency services were called to the Hezkel Street in Modiin Illit at around 1 p.m.
