The baby was in its car seat in the back of the car which was parked in a company car park in the town of La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland.

Reportedly the baby’s parent “went to work, forgetting to leave the baby in the usual childcare facility.”

Investigating prosecutor Marc Remy said: “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” and revealed that he had opened a criminal inquiry.
