An elderly woman was removed from her car in Beersheba on Sunday after she had been trapped in the vehicle for several hours in the summer heat.
Passersby noticed the woman and broke the locks.
Magen David Adom medics evacuated the woman to the city's Soroka Hospital in moderate condition. Her son picked her up from the hospital after she had been treated.
The woman spoke no Hebrew, and therefore, the circumstances of the incident were unclear.
