A nine-month-old baby was found unconscious Monday in a car in Ramat Gan, after left in the car for several hours. After Magen David Adom paramedics attempted to perform CPR on the baby, she was pronounced dead at the Chaim Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer.
The baby's father, who is suspected of leaving his baby in the car, was taken in for questioning.
According to suspicion, the father had dropped off his two older children before leaving the baby at the car at approximately 9 am and until 4 pm.
According to Magen David Adom Spokesman Zachy Heller, "At 4 pm we received a call about a nine-month-old baby found in a car, after probably staying there for a few hours.
"Paramedics rushed to the scene and when they arrived they noticed the baby unconscious at the back seat of the car. While performing CPR, they evacuated her to the Chaim Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer, where efforts to save her life continued, but she was eventually pronounced dead," Heller said.
A woman living next door to the family said: "This is a very nice family, and a devoted father. He has always taken part in taking the kids to daycare. He was thrilled when the baby was born. It's not his fault."
