A five-year-old boy suffocated to death after he was left inside a locked car for several hours, according to Times of Oman.
“The incident took place on the second day of Eid on August 22,” the Royal Oman Police (ROP) said in a statement.
It called upon parents not to leave their children unattended in vehicles and to always ensure that the airconditioning is on.
In June 2017, a 28-month-old child died after being left inside a family car in 35-degree heat.
The toddler, Abrar Mohammed, was taken by her parents to hospital as soon as they discovered her but she was pronounced dead on arrival.
A similar incident in 2015 also led to multiple warnings from authorities across Oman after two boys died in a parked vehicle after accidentally locking themselves in the car.
