Iran: The parents of a four-year-old girl were mourning the loss of her aunt and they left their young daughter inside a boiling car. Sadly, when they realised what had happened, it was too late. 

What exactly happened?
The parents of the four-year-old girl locked the child in the car and she eventually succumbed to stress, heat intensity and lack of oxygen, according to doctors.

The little girl had arrived for the funeral service with her parents. But since she was sleeping, her parents left her in the parked car and they went on to attend the ceremony. However, they completely forgot her for hours due to the stress of the ceremony. 

As the temperatures rose up to 49 degrees in the city, the temperature in the car rose up to 76 Celsius, which is high enough to roast a chicken. This high temperature was the reason behind the death of the little girl. 

When the parents finally remembered their daughter, they reached the car and saw that she was unconscious. When the medics arrived at the scene they confirmed that the girl has succumbed to death due to heat stroke and


What did the doctor say?
The head of Ramhormoz's forensics department Dr Gholamreza Haidarnejad said: "A young couple left their four-year-old child sleeping in a car when they went to mourn the little girl's aunt."

 "The parents who decided not to wake the child then forgot her because of their distress during the funeral. The child was left in the car for several hours in hot, sunny weather and the car doors were locked."

According to reports, the parents of the said child were so devastated that they are getting counselling after the death of their daughter. An investigation is going on as well into the tragedy by local police in Ramhormoz which is the capital city of Ramhormoz County, in Iran's Khuzestan Province.

Since the windows weren't open either, there was no oxygen supply for the girl. 

Iran is one of the hottest countries on planet Earth. The temperature in the country goes over 50-degree Celcius on regular basis, especially during the summer time. Heatwaves and heatstrokes are quite common in this area of the world since it is surrounded by barren desserts with no vegetation around.
