A five-year-old girl died Friday after being trapped inside a car for a long period of time. She was brought to a local health clinic in Beersheba while unconscious.

The child’s family said they took her to the clinic immediately upon finding her in the car, which was parked outside their house. Police arrived on the scene shortly thereafter and began questioning those involved.

It is believed that the girl stepped into the deserted car and locked herself in.
