Two children died from a heat stroke on Friday after being left alone in a locked vehicle in the Bedouin town of Hura in southern Israel.
The cousins, aged 3 and 7, were found unconscious in the vehicle and were warm to the touch, according to paramedics from Israel's emergency service Magen David Adom. They were evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in critical condition and later pronounced dead.
Israel Police have opened an investigation into the incident.
According to data provided by Beterem - Safe Kids Israel, 40 children died after being left alone in cars over the past decade, with six of the deaths coming just in the last year.
