A baby girl, found in an unresponsive condition, in a car in Co. Tipperary, has tragically died this afternoon.

The seven-month-old infant was located in a car, near to the village of Dundrum, 24.00km (25 mins) from Thurles, shortly after lunch time, at around 1.45pm.  It is believed the child may have suffered from heat stroke.

Gardaí, the Ambulance Service and a local Dundrum doctor, were alerted to the incident and attended at the scene.  The infant, in a critical condition, was immediately transferred by ambulance to the local Kickham’s GAA pitch in Dundrum, shortly before 3.00pm, before being flown to University Hospital Limerick (UHL) by air ambulance.

Describing the baby’s death as a tragedy; a spokesperson from University Hospital Limerick this evening, at around 5.00pm, confirmed the sad news that the child had been pronounced dead.

We understand that the infant was the only child of a local couple from nearby Rossmore Village, Dundrum Road, Tipperary area and Gardaí state they believe that she was found in her father’s car, after he attended work this morning in nearby Dundrum.
