A four-year-old girl died after her father left her in the car for ten hours at his workplace at Bukit Makmur, Sungai Lalang, Sungai Petani on 13 August. Her father realised his daughter was in the car when he was leaving work at 6.20pm
Kuala Muda Chief Police, Assistant Commissioner Adzli Abu Shah told Harian Metro that the girl was left in the car with the windows closed and the engine switched off.
The father first sent his elder daughter to (SMK) Teluk Bayu, Sungai Petani at 7.30am and went to his workplace but he forgot about his younger daughter who was fast asleep in the backseat.
“The victim should have been sent to her grandmother’s house in Kampung Bukit, Sungai Pasir before the father went to work.”
When the father wanted to go back home he realized that his daughter was unconscious in the back seat. Panicked, he called for help but unfortunately the girl was later confirmed dead by the paramedics.
Her body was brought to the Forensic Department of Hospital Sultanah Bahiyah, Alor Setar for a post mortem. The case is currently being investigated under Section 31 (1) (a) of the Children Act 2001.
