Apparently, the baby's father had been driving her and her sister after a night shift, and was supposed to drop off each at a different location. He forgot to drop the baby off, leaving her in the car and going into the family's house, where he went to sleep.

It is only when his wife called him and asked about the baby that he realized what had happened.
When the family called Magen David Adom, paramedics instructed them how to perform CPR on the baby until teams arrive at the house. Upon arrival, MDA paramedics continued CPR, but were eventually forced to pronounce her death.

According to the rescue team, the baby had been severely dehydrated and was suffering from heat strokes.
The baby's parents have left the area and are staying with relatives in the settlement. The car in which the baby was left has been taken by police.
Some two weeks ago, a nine-month-old baby was found unconscious in a car in Ramat Gan, after she was left in the car for several hours. Magen David Adom paramedics attempted to perform CPR on the baby en route to hospital, but she was pronounced dead at the Chaim Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer.
