A 10-month-old girl died after being left in a locked car for eight hours on Friday. This took place in Mallorca on the Balearic Islands.
The grandfather of the child, who had been tasked with taking the baby to play school, had arrived too early and as the baby was asleep, had decided to go for a coffee and wait for the school to open.
When he did eventually return to his car at 15.00h, having completely forgotten about the girl, it was to find her unconscious and not responding so he tried to get medical help, but it was already too late.
The 56-year-old grandfather was taken to the hospital in Manacor to be treated for shock.
