A baby has been found dead in a car after a parent apparently forgot to leave the child at nursery and went to work.
The tragic 16-month-old tot was left for “a number of hours” in the back of a vehicle parked in a company car park in the town of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
Investigators revealed on Friday, August, 29, 2014 the baby was left in the car after the parent “went to work, forgetting to leave the baby in the usual childcare facility”.
Neuchatel prosecutor Marc Remy added: “It was not until the end of the working day when they went to pick up their child, that they realised the tragedy that had occurred.”
The identities of the baby and the parents have not yet been revealed but Mr Remy said a criminal inquiry had been opened.
In the US, dad Justin Harris was charged with murder after leaving 22-month-old son Cooper in the back of his car for seven hours while he went to work.
