UAE: Boy Dies of Suffocation after Sleeping in Car and Left Unattended

Sad news as a boy has just died due to suffocation after being left alone unattended in a bus in Ajman. Reports from Ajman Police mention that a child, who was 3 years and 8 months old fell asleep inside the bus and was left alone for at least 4 hours.

All adults, please be reminded of the penalty for leaving children unattended or locked in cars constitutes a penalty of AED 1 Million Fine. But more than the penalty and Fine, be reminded that this involves a life.

More importantly, as the summer season hits the UAE, we have to be extra alert given the temperatures are rising.
