A 23-month-old child died in Canada after being left in a car. The incident took place in Bancroft, Ontario, last week when the infant’s mother – a teacher – left him in the vehicle accidentally, according to CBC News.
The car was found parked in the parking lot of North Hastings High School on Thursday, when the woman works, the report further said.
According to Bancroft mayor Paul Jenkins, the town is coming together to support the family of the boy, Everett Smith.
The mayor further said that the boy should have been driven to the daycare, but that didn’t happen. Instead, the child was unintentionally left in the vehicle.
Mayor Jerkins said several efforts were made by teachers and emergency personnel at the North Hastings High School to revive the boy, but couldn’t succeed, CBC News further said.
