Death of a 2 year old left in this car

A parent who allegedly left their 2-year-old child in their car found them dead at a Montérégie retirement home after their day at work yesterday.

“Leaving a baby in the car in this heat like today is like putting a child on the stove. It really does something to me,” says Réjean Pelletier with tears in his eyes.

In the parking lot of the building where he is caretaker, a child would have died of heat yesterday in Vaudreuil-Dorion.

According to our information, the parent forgot the 2-year-old in his Chevrolet car when the mercury rose to 29°C.

The father or mother, whose identity is currently unknown, would have burst into tears upon seeing his child unconscious at around 4.15pm after his day at work at the Les Jardins Vaudreuil residence on rue Querbes.

Diane Brisebois thinks of the little one who was left in the vehicle under the blazing sun in the sector on Friday and claims she gagged while performing the “horror scene”.

“He’s a little baby. He hadn’t done anything wrong. It’s terrible. I get chills just thinking about it,” says the one who lives in the building, which is located a few meters from where the tragedy happened.

Ms Brisebois adds that the vehicle in which the child died drives past her home every morning.

“I was told that at the end of the day one woman started screaming and crying. The police would have taken her away,” says Réjean Pelletier.

Stéphane Tremblay, spokesman for the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), mentions that the investigation has been entrusted to the Major Crimes Investigation Service.

“It is not known how long the child was in the vehicle at the time. […] Attempts at resuscitation were made and the death was then confirmed in hospital,” said Mr Tremblay.

It was impossible to speak to the owner of the Les Jardins Vaudreuil residence.

“We are with the police investigators and they are asking us not to say anything,” said an employee on the phone who did not identify herself.

This event, which took place in Vaudreuil-Dorion on Friday, is reminiscent of that of a father who found his baby dead in an SUV in Montreal in 2018. He was wrongly convinced that he had taken him to his downtown daycare.
